Hosted by comic Josh Widdicome, Twit Of The Year takes a look back at 2013 to reveal the biggest social media gaffes and triumphs that got the nation talking and reminisces on how they were viewed, shared and retold online.

From celebrity misdemeanours and meltdowns to the unlikely events that set timelines alight, this show takes a raucous journey through the most shocking, memorable and talked-about moments of the past twelve months building to the naming of 2013's Twit of the Year.

Josh is joined by Marcus Brigstocke, Grace Dent, Joe Lycett and Katherine Ryan in the studio, with opinionated comedians and prolific tweeters providing comments via VT. Together they question what can be learnt from the most funny, cringe-worthy and downright stupid comments made in 140 characters.

With so many contenders to choose from, who will be crowned Twit of The Year 2013?

Note: Jack Dee was originally announced as the host of this format. Justin Bieber was named Twit Of The Year.
