Strictly Come Dancing is back once again, but two partners who seemed to have missed selection for this latest series are Paul Merton and Ian Hislop, the latter bemoaning that he’s beeb saddled with the ‘joke contestant’ and that he’s not just got two left feet, but also two left arms.
Yes, this isn’t really Strictly, but a trailer for Have I Got News For You Series 50.
As always, there’ll be guest hosts, and the first is producer-puncher Jeremy Clarkson, with guests Richard Osman (Pointless, Two Tribes) and journalist Camilla Long, who often outshines Merton when she’s on. Hopefully, Merton will be more back on form this time round, but he has rather treaded water over the past few years.
Strictly Come Dancing, I mean, Have I Got News For You is on BBC1 on Friday night at 9pm, and the extended version, Have I Got A Bit More News For You, is on BBC1 next Monday at 10.35pm. If you miss either version, you can check them out on BBC iPlayer.
