Would I Lie To You? trivia
Would I Lie To You? shares many of its panellists, crew and writers with 8 Out of 10 Cats. This is because both shows are made by the Endemol subsiduary Zeppotron.
Episode 1.6 was censured by the BBC's Editorial Complaints Unit. The producers got in trouble after seriously breaching the BBC's editorial standards when Angus Deayton read out the following 'pungently personal' scripted jokes about Sir Jimmy Savile:
Sir Jimmy is quite keen on seeing how blue mouldy bits develop. That's why he stayed with his mum so long after she died.
The blue bit in cheese is in fact a living fungus that smells slightly off and serves no useful purpose - much like Sir Jimmy himself nowadays.
The episode has been subsequently edited to ensure this joke is not repeated.
