I'm gauging the temperature. I want to look glamorous so don't want to put on a cardigan!

0:00:000:00:04

I'm trying to work out whether I'm more likely to be cold with fear

0:00:040:00:08

or hot with embarrassment!

0:00:080:00:10

Let's do a straw poll.

0:00:100:00:12

Cardy on or off?

0:00:120:00:14

-AUDIENCE:

-Off!

-Ooh, 'ello!

0:00:140:00:16

Who let this crowd in?

0:00:170:00:21

I think if you look at me,

0:00:210:00:22

you'll find that the choice between cardigan and looking sexy doesn't have to be made!

0:00:220:00:28

Cardigan on or cardigan off?

0:00:300:00:32

AUDIENCE: On!

0:00:320:00:35

Good evening, welcome to Have I Got News For You.

0:01:130:01:15

I'm Benedict Cumberbatch. In the news this week,

0:01:150:01:18

to show there are no hard feelings, David Miliband takes brother Ed for a ride in his new speedboat.

0:01:180:01:23

At the Commonwealth Games, organisers at the closing ceremony

0:01:310:01:35

are relieved that nothing truly disastrous happened.

0:01:350:01:38

Too soon?

0:01:450:01:46

And in Tokyo, inventors of the latest hi-tech toy, the kick-bot,

0:01:490:01:52

admit it was a mistake to base the software on the England team's recent performance.

0:01:520:01:57

Using techniques I learned filming Sherlock Holmes, I can deduce that the woman on Ian's team

0:02:060:02:12

is a columnist, presenter and poker player.

0:02:120:02:14

How, you may ask? Simply by looking at the card given to me by the researcher!

0:02:140:02:19

It's Victoria Coren!

0:02:190:02:21

APPLAUSE

0:02:210:02:24

Similarly, on Paul's team, "Some comedian bloke what was good last time he was on the show."

0:02:260:02:33

It's Jon Richardson.

0:02:330:02:36

APPLAUSE

0:02:360:02:38

And we start with the bigger stories of the week. Paul and Jon, take a look at this.

0:02:390:02:44

Yes, this is the ongoing story of the happy news of the miners being released.

0:02:440:02:51

Viewers are getting fed up of the coverage as it's all rather similar.

0:02:510:02:55

So the last 15 miners are going to be part of a lottery game

0:02:550:02:58

where they hold up a number, and if you've got the number at home...

0:02:580:03:02

Oh, what was that?

0:03:020:03:04

Somebody winning the lottery!

0:03:040:03:06

-People are gradually coming out of the mine, one by one.

-Yes.

0:03:060:03:10

The ultimate feel-good story about the release of the trapped miners.

0:03:100:03:14

To everyone's delight, maybe except for Sky News who were probably hoping for at least two deaths!

0:03:140:03:20

The numbers are fascinating, though.

0:03:210:03:23

If you look at it, there are 33 miners

0:03:230:03:26

and they were released on 13/10/2010.

0:03:260:03:30

-If you take off the 2000 and just add the ten...

-Yes.

0:03:300:03:34

-It adds up to 33.

-Yeah.

-So...

0:03:340:03:36

-So...

-LAUGHTER

0:03:360:03:38

So if you're thinking of playing Chilean miner bingo, put it on number three!

0:03:380:03:42

"Here comes number 15. First time this week."

0:03:420:03:47

Do you know what the sequence of events was for each rescued miner?

0:03:480:03:52

They got in the thing, they took 'em out, and they got out the thing.

0:03:520:03:56

Pretty much!

0:03:580:04:00

But also embraced their relatives, then embraced the president,

0:04:000:04:04

then go, "Gracias, Chile!"

0:04:040:04:07

to the crowd.

0:04:070:04:09

And then they got the next one up.

0:04:090:04:11

You don't get long in the limelight!

0:04:110:04:13

Their relatives went the day the thing collapsed

0:04:130:04:16

and some were there the whole time.

0:04:160:04:18

That's why they've called it Camp Hope.

0:04:180:04:21

Which sounds like a rubbish name until you think the alternative was "Mine Camp"!

0:04:210:04:25

LAUGHTER

0:04:250:04:28

It's not just the relatives. The mistresses was the big story a few weeks ago.

0:04:320:04:37

-Which might come up.

-Women were turning up who weren't the wives.

0:04:370:04:40

That's why the miners came out in sunglasses!

0:04:400:04:43

One of the papers ran with...

0:04:430:04:46

Ironically, his wife would have got to call his mistress a gold digger!

0:04:510:04:56

I was quite impressed because I thought, you know,

0:04:560:04:59

I don't know what they pay miners out there - 3 a month?

0:04:590:05:03

And they've been able to support a wife, a family and a demanding Chilean mistress!

0:05:030:05:07

Mind you, they've not spent much in the last three months themselves!

0:05:070:05:11

-Kept their pennies for Christmas!

-They get more attractive the longer they're down there.

0:05:110:05:16

One guy proposed to his wife before this happened and she said no.

0:05:160:05:20

Then she proposed to him while he was trapped. She was saying, "I fancy you when you're buried!

0:05:200:05:27

"I really love you when you're dead."

0:05:270:05:30

They kept going on about Christmas. It was a promise, they'd be out by Christmas.

0:05:310:05:35

These people have been trapped in a confined space, looking at the same faces, day after day.

0:05:350:05:42

Bickering and fighting and trying not to kill each other.

0:05:420:05:45

And now they're going to have a family Christmas!

0:05:450:05:49

Who's coming out of this well?

0:05:490:05:51

-Everyone!

-That's true, correct. But...

0:05:510:05:54

It's not a well, it's a shaft!

0:05:540:05:56

-Thanks very much!

-Ian's off to a flying start.

0:05:560:05:59

-The foreman is very heroic, isn't he?

-He sorted them into groups

0:05:590:06:04

-and they played dominoes and kept fit.

-Yeah, they kept fit.

0:06:040:06:08

I heard they carried on mining as well!

0:06:080:06:10

If this studio goes down, and someone said, "Carry on doing jokes for a few months while we sort it."

0:06:100:06:16

No!

0:06:170:06:19

Do we know what's happening to the mine shaft, talking about money?

0:06:210:06:25

It's being turned into a theme park. It's a fantastic ride!

0:06:250:06:31

-One way!

-It's quite slow!

0:06:310:06:33

The queues are horrendous!

0:06:340:06:36

It's likely to stay a mine as the drilling company have found massive reserves

0:06:360:06:42

of gold and silver and copper during the rescue drilling.

0:06:420:06:45

I'm even more distrusting they've found more gold and everyone's going "Chile's brilliant."

0:06:450:06:51

I smell a rat.

0:06:510:06:53

-Do you?

-And the Chilean president used to own a TV company.

0:06:530:06:56

I'm just saying, if this was an episode of Scooby-Doo.

0:06:560:07:00

He'd bring his mask off and Murdoch's underneath going, "Ha, ha! And you watched it for hours!"

0:07:020:07:07

I know what you mean. The idea that the company that's responsible for the collapse

0:07:070:07:13

has found more gold as a result of the collapse and is taking the credit for the rescue!

0:07:130:07:18

"We got these guys out of the ground where we put them."

0:07:180:07:22

-Slightly dodgy.

-What is Ariel Dacona?

0:07:220:07:26

-Is he a father?

-He is indeed a father. His wife gave birth via VT link to the mineshaft.

0:07:260:07:31

Was the baby conceived in the same way?

0:07:330:07:36

I dread to think!

0:07:360:07:38

Ariel tuned in just in time to see the president leaning into shot to kiss his daughter.

0:07:380:07:44

-The Mail...

-Yeah.

-Daily Mail.

-The voice of sanity!

-The voice of sanity, yes.

0:07:450:07:50

-They've criticised...

-"Foreigners down hole!"

0:07:500:07:53

That's the correct answer. Ten points.

0:07:540:07:57

The Mail criticised the size of the BBC presence there.

0:07:570:08:01

-Do you know how big it was?

-Um...

-They can't find a tragedy that doesn't involve attacking the BBC!

0:08:010:08:08

"End of the world." BBC tried to cover it.

0:08:080:08:11

I don't know. It's a big story. I suppose the BBC sent quite a few people there.

0:08:110:08:17

-Probably moaning about the number of journalists. How many? 12?

-25?

0:08:170:08:21

-25.

-That's spot on.

0:08:210:08:23

The 24-hour news channels have been enjoying this story,

0:08:230:08:26

but there was a hint they were running out of things to say.

0:08:260:08:31

REPORTER: 'So far the only miner to emerge from the tube with a beard.'

0:08:320:08:36

AUDIENCE LAUGHTER

0:08:360:08:40

This is the amazing rescue of "Los 33-os", the 33 Chilean miners.

0:08:450:08:50

One miner who may not want to return to the surface is Yonni Barrios

0:08:500:08:54

whose wife is furious after finding out he has a mistress.

0:08:540:08:58

Well, at least for the last 70 days, she knows where he's been!

0:08:580:09:02

According to The Times...

0:09:020:09:05

To imagine what that's like, take a trip on the Northern Line!

0:09:090:09:12

Ian and Victoria, here are yours.

0:09:140:09:17

Finishing touches. Spot the balls.

0:09:170:09:20

Ooh. Reservoir Postman!

0:09:220:09:24

Another marriage!

0:09:250:09:28

"Hooray! We're going to be in debt for our whole lives. Oh, good!"

0:09:290:09:33

-Where do you want to start? A new Labour leader?

-Let's start on the new Labour leader, yeah.

0:09:330:09:38

Let's have a look at some of the exciting faces who are in the new Labour cabinet.

0:09:380:09:43

I'm worried. In my pre-recording anxiety dream,

0:09:430:09:46

somebody asked me, "Which one's Yvette Cooper and which one's Teresa May?"

0:09:460:09:51

-I woke up screaming. It's going to happen now, isn't it?

-It is happening.

0:09:510:09:55

Victoria, who's this?

0:09:550:09:56

LAUGHTER

0:09:560:09:59

It's neither of the two you feared it might be!

0:09:590:10:02

-I'll give you a clue. It's Jim Murphy, is his name.

-A pretty good clue!

0:10:020:10:07

-It is!

-I could almost make a guess after that clue!

0:10:070:10:11

-Anybody know who this is?

-Is that Mary Creagh?

-Hooray!

0:10:110:10:15

How do you know her?

0:10:150:10:18

-I read the papers!

-Oh, yeah!

0:10:180:10:21

It's one of those little tricks after 300 years you pick up!

0:10:220:10:26

They're all the same! Both Milibands, Clegg and Cameron, identical!

0:10:260:10:30

-Imagine being at school with them. They'd all be "that guy".

-Can you imagine that, Ian?

0:10:300:10:35

Some of them. Not Ed, obviously. He went to a comprehensive!

0:10:380:10:41

At least when it was Kinnock and Thatcher, you knew the difference.

0:10:450:10:49

-You can show us 18 pictures of these ministers and shadow ministers...

-Only one more. Who's this?

0:10:490:10:55

Phil Miliband!

0:10:570:10:58

LAUGHTER

0:10:580:11:01

He's the even older brother. He was really cross when they both stood against him!

0:11:030:11:09

No, this is Ivan Lewis. Here is a familiar face.

0:11:100:11:14

-Is that the woman that put the cat in the bin?

-No, no.

0:11:140:11:18

-This is Gilliane Duffy...

-You've made her sort of French - "Gilliane Duffy".

0:11:210:11:25

-I think she's called Gillian Duffy!

-Yes, she'd be very angry about anything other anglicising her name.

0:11:250:11:32

So Gillian Duffy.

0:11:320:11:35

The woman who Gordon Brown was overheard calling bigoted.

0:11:370:11:41

She was at the Labour conference and took the opportunity to have an in-depth discussion with Tony Benn.

0:11:410:11:46

I've two grandchildren and I'm concerned at their future.

0:11:460:11:50

'Settling in for the speech, Mrs Duffy shared her thoughts with Tony Benn.'

0:11:500:11:55

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:11:550:11:57

Oh, he's asleep!

0:12:000:12:02

It's the honest response to the public's opinions.

0:12:060:12:09

Clegg and Cameron were meant to be different. Leaders of opposing parties.

0:12:120:12:16

They're more identical by the day. Clegg says it's the right government for the right time.

0:12:160:12:22

It's a seedy way to dignify opportunism.

0:12:220:12:25

He would have made a pact with the Klingons if it had helped!

0:12:250:12:28

I don't know, I think the Klingon manifesto is pretty good.

0:12:280:12:33

I disagree. The Klingons have shown they're bent on world domination so I'm glad the Lib Dems are with them.

0:12:330:12:39

The Klingons get the Lib Dems to make the policy announcements! If they're going to blow up a planet,

0:12:410:12:46

they say, "Get the Lib Dems to announce it!"

0:12:460:12:49

The Lib Dem party is the equivalent of the guy on Star Trek who you've never seen before.

0:12:490:12:55

He's the first one to get killed. That's the Liberal Democrats in this scenario!

0:12:550:13:00

New shadow cabinet, Alan Johnson, was made shadow chancellor.

0:13:000:13:04

What did he say his first act was going to be?

0:13:040:13:07

-His first act was going to be to read up an economics primer!

-Yes.

0:13:070:13:11

-I haven't made that up.

-You paraphrased it slightly, but that's pretty much exactly what he said.

0:13:110:13:17

Good luck, mate!

0:13:210:13:24

-Meanwhile...

-There are two schools of thought on that.

0:13:250:13:28

It's quite embarrassing to have your major office of state

0:13:280:13:32

given to a man who has no maths O-level and doesn't understand figures.

0:13:320:13:37

But then, we did have Gordon Brown in charge, who was an economist,

0:13:370:13:41

and was meant to be good with figures

0:13:410:13:43

and we're where we are now.

0:13:430:13:45

So take your pick. I'll go for the postman!

0:13:450:13:48

The economy will recover. Probably not today, maybe lunchtime tomorrow.

0:13:480:13:52

At the Tory conference, Eric Pickles, the new community secretary was there.

0:13:550:13:59

What were people betting Pickles would do at some point that week?

0:13:590:14:03

Get his own postal code?

0:14:030:14:05

LAUGHTER

0:14:050:14:06

Go, "Bloody onion rings!"

0:14:090:14:11

It was Ladbrokes offering odds on him being spotted

0:14:140:14:17

in a curry house in Birmingham...

0:14:170:14:19

..during the week at the conference.

0:14:200:14:22

What happened? He spotted himself in a curry house

0:14:220:14:26

and posted the picture on Twitter.

0:14:260:14:29

LAUGHTER

0:14:290:14:31

Do you reckon when he goes for a curry he says, "Can I have some poppadoms?

0:14:310:14:35

"And you haven't got any pickles, have you?"

0:14:350:14:38

Anybody know the name of the curry house in question?

0:14:410:14:44

Edwina's Curries?

0:14:440:14:47

There is a restaurant in south-east London called The Taste of Lewisham.

0:14:480:14:52

And I'll say no more!

0:14:540:14:56

But I've never been tempted to pop in!

0:14:560:14:59

There's another restaurant on the way to Stoke Newington

0:14:590:15:02

which has combined the two words of chicken and pizza and put them together.

0:15:020:15:06

And the place is called Chick-Pizz!

0:15:060:15:08

P-I-Z-Z. Chick-Pizz. There's never anybody in there!

0:15:110:15:15

Because no matter how drunk you are, you still think, "Chick-Pizz?"

0:15:150:15:20

But I'm sure it's lovely, in case the lawyer's watching. If he's not watching, I'm sure it's awful!

0:15:220:15:28

-Anyone want to know the answer?

-Yes, we do.

0:15:280:15:30

It should have been Poppadom Preach!

0:15:350:15:37

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:15:370:15:40

That's Jim Sweeney's joke. How are you, Jim?

0:15:440:15:47

According to the Daily Mail, Eric Pickles did something in William Hague's hotel room.

0:15:470:15:53

Around 25 years ago. Anyone remember or know what that was?

0:15:560:16:01

-He didn't share a hotel room with him?

-He did share a room.

0:16:010:16:05

They would look like Planes, Trains and Automobiles together.

0:16:050:16:09

Just imagine Hague shouting at him in the morning.

0:16:090:16:11

"If you're going to..." That's a dreadful impression and I immediately retract this entire bit.

0:16:110:16:17

-Just swear, then they can't use it.

-Balls, fannies.

0:16:170:16:21

Sorry, that's the Home and Foreign Office!

0:16:220:16:25

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:16:250:16:28

That was a trap. It's past 9.15. They can use it!

0:16:310:16:34

For a prank - in inverted commas - oh, those witty Tories!

0:16:360:16:41

He removed all the furniture from Hague's room, including the bed.

0:16:410:16:45

So when Hague got back later, he had to sleep on the floor.

0:16:450:16:48

How could you remove all the furniture?

0:16:480:16:51

-What did he do with it?

-I think he's using "removed" in the archaic sense of "ate".

0:16:510:16:55

Boris Johnson was at the conference, too.

0:17:020:17:04

Let's see the masterful way Boris manages to deflect Paxman's questions.

0:17:040:17:08

First by throwing in baffling classical terms and then hijacking the camera.

0:17:080:17:13

You chose this day of all days on which so many families are going to be losing their child benefit

0:17:130:17:20

to say let's not be beastly to bankers!

0:17:200:17:23

I hesitate to accuse you of ignoratio elenchi...

0:17:230:17:28

It says up there...

0:17:280:17:31

For the third time in this interview...

0:17:310:17:33

You are paid a very considerable sum by the BBC,

0:17:330:17:36

the quantity of which we have yet to discover...

0:17:360:17:39

LAUGHTER DROWNS SPEECH

0:17:390:17:42

APPLAUSE

0:17:420:17:44

Some ministers rely on more everyday terminology than Boris's.

0:17:480:17:51

Here's children's minister Tim Loughton being asked about the child benefit cut.

0:17:510:17:56

I'm very happy with the policy that George Osborne announced.

0:17:560:17:59

It's tough, it's a difficult choice, but it's there.

0:17:590:18:02

-End of.

-It doesn't need a review or looking at?

-End of.

0:18:020:18:06

-You said you'd see what comes along...

-End of.

0:18:060:18:08

End of.

0:18:090:18:11

-Are you going to try and...

-End of.

0:18:110:18:13

Your career? End of!

0:18:140:18:17

Sorry, when I introduced him as children's minister, it should have been childish minister

0:18:170:18:23

being asked about benefit cuts.

0:18:230:18:25

It's horrible when they talk. The worst part was Cameron talking about the football.

0:18:250:18:30

He went, "It was dreadful watching them slot another one past our lads."

0:18:300:18:34

Eughh!

0:18:340:18:36

It's like meeting a girlfriend's dad and he leans in and goes, "So, do you like bums or titties?"

0:18:360:18:41

APPLAUSE AND LAUGHTER

0:18:410:18:44

Why did David Cameron single out this girl?

0:18:470:18:50

There's something missing in that photograph!

0:18:500:18:53

-It's her teeth.

-It is.

-Is she the girl

0:18:530:18:56

who gave the money that she'd got from the tooth fairy, she sent it in?

0:18:560:19:02

She did. She offered a pound that she got from the tooth fairy.

0:19:020:19:06

You'd want more than a pound for a gap like that!

0:19:060:19:09

LAUGHTER DROWNS SPEECH

0:19:090:19:12

Maybe it's taxable. "One for the government and another five for me!"

0:19:120:19:16

But she did it...

0:19:170:19:19

-Quite sweet, isn't it?

-Bet that's made you feel guilty now, Mr Jon!

0:19:210:19:26

You'll find what she actually said was "Pay for jobth."

0:19:260:19:29

A sweet little girl of six still believes in a Conservative government!

0:19:340:19:39

-There have been two big policy rows recently.

-Child benefit.

0:19:420:19:46

And how to pay for higher education.

0:19:460:19:48

In one case, you're not going to get it

0:19:480:19:53

above a certain level.

0:19:530:19:55

And in the other case, your children will have to pay.

0:19:550:19:58

So they're both solved. End of!

0:19:580:20:00

-They've saved a billion pounds.

-And they're spending 13 billion

0:20:010:20:05

on a fortnight of sport in 2012!

0:20:050:20:08

Yeah. Good point.

0:20:080:20:10

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:20:100:20:12

Tuition fees. Raising the cap on fees could mean students incurring twice the debt they currently do.

0:20:160:20:21

Not funny, but topical.

0:20:210:20:23

-Nick Clegg's in a pickle...

-It is quite funny.

-In what sense?

0:20:230:20:26

The Lib Dems said before the election "Absolutely we will not raise tuition fees.

0:20:260:20:31

"We pledge we will not raise tuition fees."

0:20:310:20:34

And now, as a sign that they've become proper politicians,

0:20:340:20:38

they've abandoned that pledge

0:20:380:20:40

and increased tuition fees.

0:20:400:20:42

The man that they got to review university fees has been given 18 honorary doctorates.

0:20:420:20:48

He's got no idea what it's like to get a degree. He keeps getting given them.

0:20:480:20:53

The man they got to investigate public finance waste, Philip Green,

0:20:530:20:57

avoided £285 million-worth of tax by putting his assets in his wife's name.

0:20:570:21:02

They might as well get Karen Matthews to investigate how families

0:21:020:21:07

could further reach their budget in hard times.

0:21:070:21:10

How can you trust a man whose tax bill is 285 million

0:21:100:21:14

and goes, "It's ridiculous I'd pay that."

0:21:140:21:16

You pay that cos you earned 1.2 billion, you fat, greedy shit!

0:21:160:21:20

APPLAUSE

0:21:200:21:22

It's all change in British politics. Miliband has appointed a new front-bench team.

0:21:250:21:30

According to the Telegraph:

0:21:300:21:33

..with the exception of Boris Johnson when his wife comes home early!

0:21:370:21:41

They promised I wouldn't be forced into doing any painful puns regarding my doing Sherlock Holmes,

0:21:450:21:50

so, without any further ado, let's move on to Round Two, "the Round of the Baskervilles".

0:21:500:21:56

LAUGHTER

0:21:570:21:59

Buzz when you know what the story is.

0:21:590:22:02

HOUND HOWLS

0:22:020:22:05

Is this toilets?

0:22:060:22:08

Yes, it's someone flushing my credibility down the loo!

0:22:090:22:13

We can't exactly do a round on the Terence Rattigan you've just done at The National!

0:22:130:22:18

Ooh, thank you, Ian. No, we can't.

0:22:180:22:21

-It was very good.

-You're very kind. Thank you.

-It's over.

-It's over.

0:22:210:22:26

-Is it to do with the Commonwealth Games?

-Yes, it is.

0:22:280:22:31

I was nearly interested in it, this time. There was loads of scandal and the rooms fell down,

0:22:310:22:37

there were dogs on the pitch.

0:22:370:22:39

-Did you stop watching once the sport began?

-Yeah.

0:22:390:22:42

Originally in the village, they were worried because one of the inspectors

0:22:420:22:46

said there was excrement where it shouldn't be.

0:22:460:22:49

Not a great description of your accommodation for the forthcoming weeks.

0:22:490:22:55

Then the toilet theme continued in that a number of swimmers were ill.

0:22:550:22:59

They had to finish swimming and then run to the toilet.

0:22:590:23:03

The 100-yard dash became the 150-yard dash.

0:23:030:23:06

What I liked was the organiser of the Commonwealth Games, his speech for the opening ceremony

0:23:060:23:12

thanked Princess Diana for going.

0:23:120:23:15

We know one thing about him, he doesn't read the Daily Express!

0:23:150:23:19

The Commonwealth Games, aimed to encourage the spread of democracy,

0:23:210:23:25

human rights, world peace and laughing at incompetent foreigners!

0:23:250:23:29

They weren't just incompetent, though.

0:23:290:23:31

They weren't so sweet when you saw the attempts to build the stadium on time,

0:23:310:23:35

which involved very small children.

0:23:350:23:38

They got some children to help.

0:23:380:23:40

It's like Blue Peter when you send off for a badge to build Guide Dogs for the Blind.

0:23:400:23:45

At least they don't rip their teeth out for cash!

0:23:450:23:49

Were there any other problems with scoring and timekeeping?

0:23:510:23:55

Yes. Problems scoring and timekeeping.

0:23:550:23:58

One boxer was ruled out because he turned up 24 hours too late.

0:23:580:24:03

And somebody else was given a score of 104 in croquet, which is technically impossible.

0:24:030:24:08

This is extraordinary. No-one could tell 400-metre runner Tom Druce if he'd qualified for the semi-finals.

0:24:080:24:14

According to the Mirror...

0:24:140:24:17

He did qualify, though, didn't he?

0:24:220:24:24

That would be worse. To phone your mum and say, "Did I qualify?" "No."

0:24:240:24:30

According to the Sun...

0:24:300:24:33

After which Prince Charles came out of the lavatory saying,

0:24:370:24:41

"I should never have drunk that tap water."

0:24:410:24:44

To boost audiences, the organisers gave out thousands of free tickets to primary school children,

0:24:440:24:50

which sadly they couldn't use because most couldn't get the time off work!

0:24:500:24:54

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:24:540:24:56

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

0:24:560:24:59

This is the North Korean or South Korean - I can never remember - North Korean, North Korean dictator.

0:25:020:25:09

Well, I'm not a diplomat. I don't have to visit them.

0:25:090:25:13

This is Kim Joo Ling, whatever his name is, and that's his son

0:25:130:25:19

who he's had sewn onto his lapel.

0:25:190:25:21

LAUGHTER

0:25:210:25:23

They sat in the Korean town square and watched these idiots parading up and down

0:25:230:25:28

with their boots, identical marching and stuff.

0:25:280:25:31

-A ludicrous display of conformity.

-Yes.

0:25:310:25:34

That's what it's about. Let's get the North Korean names straight.

0:25:340:25:38

-Who's this? That's Kim Il-sung.

-That's the father.

-Previous dictator.

-Right.

0:25:380:25:43

-That's Kim Jong-il.

-Yeah.

0:25:430:25:45

Looking a little bit... A little bit lonely.

0:25:450:25:49

LAUGHTER

0:25:490:25:52

And now for his son,

0:25:520:25:54

-Kim Jong-un.

-He looks like he might bring hope and optimism to a...

0:25:540:25:58

LAUGHTER DROWNS SPEECH

0:25:580:26:01

So who's this, then?

0:26:010:26:03

It's not Danny Dyer.

0:26:050:26:07

-Is that the other son?

-It is the other son. Kim Jong-nam.

0:26:090:26:14

He's not got the job as next dictator.

0:26:140:26:16

-They gave it to the younger son because the father didn't like him.

-Do you know why?

0:26:160:26:21

Was it the hat?

0:26:210:26:22

Did he dislike him because he's got a small lampshade tied to his finger?

0:26:250:26:29

A lot of fathers, that'll put them right off you.

0:26:290:26:32

"Hello, Daddy."

0:26:320:26:34

No. In 2001 he was caught trying to sneak into Japan on a false passport. Do you know why?

0:26:340:26:41

To get out of North Korea.

0:26:410:26:44

-To do what?

-Did he want to buy evil Western clothes?

0:26:440:26:48

-To visit McDonald's?

-Very close.

0:26:480:26:50

-JON:

-Burger King?

0:26:500:26:53

-No, it's not to do with any of a multitude of choice restaurants...

-Chicken-Pizz.

0:26:530:26:58

Yeah, Chick-Pizz.

0:26:580:27:00

Chicken-Pizz sounds horrible!

0:27:030:27:05

He wanted to visit Disneyland Tokyo.

0:27:100:27:12

-Aw!

-And there's another older brother, too.

0:27:120:27:15

-Kim Jong-chul. Why's he not going to take over?

-Is he dead?

0:27:150:27:20

No, he's said to be...

0:27:200:27:22

Do we have a picture so we may judge this man?

0:27:250:27:27

Sadly not. But imagine the one with the lampshade in a dress, that might do it.

0:27:270:27:32

Oh, sorry!

0:27:380:27:39

I was right over the border, then!

0:27:390:27:42

In more ways than one!

0:27:420:27:44

Kim Jong-un has got the North Korean nod.

0:27:460:27:49

-Here he is strutting his stuff.

-Go on.

0:27:490:27:51

There he is.

0:27:510:27:53

He's getting a lick on.

0:27:550:27:57

Is that the best we've got of him, walking from one bit to another bit?

0:27:570:28:02

No-one had heard of him until his father wheeled him out and said, "This is your new leader.

0:28:020:28:07

"I'm feeling a bit peaky."

0:28:070:28:09

He made him a four-star general one day and said next day, "He's going to take over."

0:28:090:28:14

-How long has he been a public figure?

-This week.

0:28:140:28:17

-Almost. Two weeks.

-Two weeks. He's like the Milibands. You'd never heard of them, had you?

0:28:170:28:22

So ITV had a man in the field there.

0:28:220:28:26

The intrepid reporter attempted to assess the popularity of the Kims. Here's how he did it.

0:28:260:28:32

'There are no opinion polls in this country of dictators.

0:28:320:28:35

'But I did get a chance to carry out an extremely unscientific measure

0:28:350:28:40

'of the young general's popularity.'

0:28:400:28:43

Let's see how popular the new leader will be.

0:28:430:28:47

Kim Jong-sung.

0:28:470:28:49

MILD APPLAUSE

0:28:490:28:51

Kim Jong-il. WEAK APPLAUSE

0:28:510:28:54

Kim Jong-un.

0:28:540:28:55

SLIGHTLY STRONGER APPLAUSE

0:28:550:28:57

Much more popular.

0:28:580:29:00

At least they applauded, though.

0:29:040:29:07

Imagine taking a group of British people and going, "David Cameron."

0:29:070:29:11

"Nick Clegg."

0:29:110:29:14

ONE PERSON APPLAUDS

0:29:140:29:16

That actually is Nick Clegg!

0:29:160:29:18

There are other military-orientated countries also fond of parading.

0:29:200:29:26

The Russians. What did we find out this week about some of their equipment?

0:29:260:29:30

-It's made of cardboard.

-Yeah.

-No, that's not right.

0:29:300:29:33

It fires cuddles.

0:29:330:29:35

We don't know what the opposite of being metal is.

0:29:360:29:40

It's inflatable. They've been stockpiling inflatable planes and tanks as decoys.

0:29:400:29:45

Here's a model of a T-80 tank being inflated.

0:29:450:29:49

God, we've got the most special footage in the world in this week's show(!)

0:29:560:30:01

One bloke walking across a car park and a tank slowly inflating.

0:30:010:30:06

Is there any chance - I know that heaven isn't here on earth -

0:30:060:30:09

but can we see that man crossing the car park once more?

0:30:090:30:12

There's something so funny about it, it'll occur to us one day what it is!

0:30:120:30:17

Put the Benny Hill music on it!

0:30:180:30:21

We can do that bit ourselves, when it comes on.

0:30:210:30:25

And go!

0:30:260:30:27

PAUL MIMICS BENNY HILL THEME

0:30:270:30:31

Where's the nurse? Where's the nurse in suspenders?

0:30:330:30:36

This is the unveiling of Kim Jong-un as the successor to Kim Jong-il.

0:30:390:30:44

Chief of the North Korean army, Ri Jong-ho, had a message for the nation:

0:30:440:30:48

Adding lol, smiley face, x x x.

0:30:580:31:02

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

0:31:020:31:05

HOUND HOWLS

0:31:050:31:07

-VICTORIA:

-Is it the new Queen Elizabeth?

0:31:070:31:10

Yes, the new cruise ship, the Queen Elizabeth,

0:31:100:31:13

christened by the Queen.

0:31:130:31:14

The guest list read like a list of people you didn't realise were still alive. Sir Jimmy Savile,

0:31:140:31:20

Vera Duckworth from Coronation Street, and Alan Whicker.

0:31:200:31:24

All very glamorous. Who do you normally have in your front room?

0:31:240:31:28

Me.

0:31:300:31:31

LAUGHTER

0:31:310:31:33

-True, yeah.

-What did Sir Jimmy Savile have to say of the liner

0:31:330:31:38

which had just arrived from Italy where it was built?

0:31:380:31:41

JON IMITATES JIMMY SAVILE

0:31:410:31:43

Yes, which translated as...

0:31:460:31:49

It's not all been good news for the Queen.

0:31:530:31:55

-How did she end up beneath Lady Gaga this week?

-Most influential women in the world.

0:31:550:32:00

-Made up by somebody.

-Yes, she came 42nd.

0:32:000:32:02

Lady Gaga was number seven.

0:32:020:32:04

-And the reason why she's more powerful?

-She's good for the butcher's business?

0:32:040:32:09

She reinvigorated pop music. And Michelle Obama, why was she top?

0:32:090:32:14

She reinvigorated...

0:32:140:32:17

It literally said something like "She shares pillow talk with the President."

0:32:170:32:22

-Eugh!

-It was because of who she was married to, and because she has good arms!

0:32:220:32:26

Do lists like this marginalise women? Paul, Ian, Jon? What do you think?

0:32:290:32:33

Time now for the odd one out round.

0:32:370:32:39

Just one between you this week.

0:32:390:32:42

A Hampshire police E-fit.

0:32:420:32:43

Bruce Willis. Natasha Gregory's cat

0:32:430:32:47

and the staff of the Olilia holiday resort in the Maldives.

0:32:470:32:50

-Blondes.

-Don't get too excited!

0:32:500:32:53

A Lithuanian travel agency is launching a blonde-only resort.

0:32:560:32:59

-That is true.

-And the cat has been dyed by its owner.

0:32:590:33:03

And this man in the E-fit had dyed hair.

0:33:030:33:06

-Has Bruce Willis dyed his hair?

-He was in "Dye Hard"!

0:33:060:33:10

It's a gritty film about a hair salon!

0:33:140:33:17

"She can't take no more peroxide!"

0:33:180:33:21

-I think Jon's got it.

-Yes, they've all been criticised for their hair colours

0:33:240:33:28

apart from Bruce Willis, who doesn't have any hair.

0:33:280:33:31

Although he did recently wear a rather fetching meat hairpiece.

0:33:310:33:35

Like to see Bruce wearing his meat hat?

0:33:350:33:38

-No, thank you.

-Good. Unfortunately, we're not allowed to.

0:33:380:33:42

A Lithuanian travel agency has been criticised

0:33:420:33:45

for plans to open a holiday resort staffed entirely by blonde women.

0:33:450:33:49

According to one newspaper, the resort is going to have...

0:33:490:33:53

I might go!

0:33:530:33:54

Could be interesting!

0:33:560:33:58

I think I'll give it a miss.

0:34:010:34:03

LAUGHTER DROWNS SPEECH

0:34:050:34:07

Do you remember those stories about how much male pilots go out boozing the night before a flight?

0:34:070:34:13

Nice, young blonde lady pilot. That's what you need.

0:34:130:34:16

For flying the plane!

0:34:160:34:17

The Hampshire police E-fit.

0:34:200:34:23

They issued an E-fit picture trying to trace a burglar

0:34:230:34:27

who stole £60 from a woman in Stockbridge.

0:34:270:34:29

Here is the full picture.

0:34:290:34:32

-They did call him the lettuce man, didn't they? Or lettuce-head.

-Lettuce-head.

0:34:340:34:39

Apparently when they asked him why he sprayed his hair like lettuce,

0:34:390:34:43

he just said, "Cos"!

0:34:430:34:45

LAUGHTER

0:34:450:34:47

So I'll probably go.

0:34:480:34:50

And there was no word on how he was dressed!

0:34:510:34:54

I'll come with you!

0:34:570:34:58

We also had Natasha Gregory's cat.

0:34:590:35:03

She only gave an interview to the Sun explaining her actions in dying it pink. Anyone know?

0:35:030:35:08

"I need medical help."

0:35:080:35:11

-How do you dye a cat pink, anyway?

-Get a candy floss machine and stick your cat on a stick.

-Yeah.

0:35:110:35:18

-That would do it.

-She said...

0:35:210:35:23

So she failed!

0:35:260:35:29

-The RSPC returned the cat.

-The RSPC?

The Royal Society for the Protection of Cruelty!

0:35:340:35:38

-The RSPCA returned the cat...

-Oh, has it expanded?

0:35:400:35:44

They've merged with the AA!

0:35:460:35:48

-The RSPCA returned the cat...

-I'm Felix and I have a problem!

0:35:500:35:54

-What did they say about the cat's condition?

-He's in the pink!

0:35:590:36:05

-Sorry!

-They say it...

0:36:060:36:08

Which is so important to cats.

0:36:120:36:14

The RSPCA have washed the cat and it's now been returned to its normal colour.

0:36:160:36:20

All except for a stubborn pink spot right underneath the tail.

0:36:200:36:24

Which may need a wire brush.

0:36:270:36:29

The missing words round this week features as its guest publication

0:36:310:36:34

The Pipe Club of Norfolk newsletter.

0:36:340:36:38

I'd hate you to think that The Pipe Club of Norfolk is nothing more than a bunch of rustic yokels

0:36:380:36:43

puffing away on silly pipes.

0:36:430:36:45

It is.

0:36:450:36:46

We start with...

0:36:480:36:49

-VICTORIA:

-I do anything for love, but I don't do that.

0:36:540:36:57

LAUGHTER

0:36:570:37:00

I do occasionally use the first person pronoun instead of the normal "one"

0:37:000:37:04

but I don't like it.

0:37:040:37:06

I do reign, but I don't rule.

0:37:080:37:11

Constitutional joke.

0:37:110:37:13

Glad you're with me there(!)

0:37:140:37:16

The answer is...

0:37:180:37:19

She just has!

0:37:220:37:23

Actually, she did. At a recent state banquet, Nicolas Sarkozy asked the Queen

0:37:230:37:28

if she ever got bored. The Queen replied, "Yes, but I don't let on."

0:37:280:37:32

She then yawned and fell asleep in her soup!

0:37:320:37:35

Next.

0:37:350:37:36

-VICTORIA:

-Treble 18, single 11, double top.

0:37:400:37:43

-JON:

-..ended with multiple injuries due to difficulty of throwing darts in a smoky room.

0:37:450:37:50

They have to smoke outside, apparently!

0:37:520:37:54

They don't throw the darts through the window, do they?

0:37:570:38:00

..ended with no harm done by a group of eccentric but quite pleasant people.

0:38:000:38:06

..ended with disappointment as nobody remembered to bring the board.

0:38:060:38:10

A proper headline!

0:38:180:38:20

Complimentary sandwiches would be welcome. "Hello, how did you do?

0:38:200:38:23

"Did you win? I'm made of cheese."

0:38:230:38:26

The darts tournament was won by Len who celebrated the only way pipe-smokers know how.

0:38:290:38:34

With a damn good shag!

0:38:340:38:36

Next...

0:38:360:38:38

-JON:

-Pavarotti's autopsy reveals...

0:38:400:38:43

LAUGHTER

0:38:450:38:47

The third day of Christmas my true love gave to me.

0:38:470:38:51

# Three musical dwarves. #

0:38:510:38:54

-#

-One was four foot two, one was three

0:38:540:38:57

-#

-And the other one was...

-#

0:38:570:39:00

The answer is...

0:39:000:39:03

-JON:

-Huge mirror in the sky.

0:39:090:39:11

-VICTORIA:

-Disastrous drop in pipe sales?

0:39:140:39:17

-It is something to do with pipes.

-Plastic pipes? Cardboard pipes?

0:39:170:39:21

-It's similar.

-Cardboard pipes?!

0:39:210:39:24

They're cheap and they're dangerous!

0:39:240:39:27

It's a design flaw like having fireworks that fit in your trousers!

0:39:270:39:31

I got that.

0:39:310:39:33

Next...

0:39:430:39:44

The wife.

0:39:490:39:50

Is this a footballer? Is it "Hookers is bad for..."

0:39:520:39:56

The answer is...

0:39:580:40:00

This is a woman who shops so much at IKEA that her marriage has collapsed.

0:40:030:40:07

So the final scores are Ian and Victoria, five.

0:40:120:40:16

Paul and Jon, six.

0:40:160:40:18

APPLAUSE

0:40:180:40:20

Boo!

0:40:200:40:21

I leave you with news that at a London sperm clinic

0:40:230:40:26

another delivery is handed over by the star donor.

0:40:260:40:29

In Chile, at a slightly smaller mining disaster,

0:40:330:40:36

the rescue operation is not quite so high-tech.

0:40:360:40:39

And in London, a "clear-the-air" meeting begins to falter

0:40:420:40:45

as the debate turns once again to who broke the plastic horse in Buckaroo.

0:40:450:40:50

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:40:500:40:53

Good night.

0:40:580:40:59

Do we have to do that whole bit or just what I said about Philip Green?

0:41:350:41:39

-I said that, though, didn't I?

-Not in a good legal way.

0:41:400:41:44

-Does that mean that's going to air that bit?

-Yes.

-Where I called him a fat, greedy shit?

0:41:450:41:50

Uh-oh!

0:41:510:41:53

I can't get banned from Top Man! Where will I get my cardigans?

0:41:530:41:56

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
