Spot the Latin pun.

Another week, another fantabulous show.  You want to stage a fake realty TV show in Turkey? You want to send a postcard to your ex about something nasty you picked up in Brazil? You want a posse of midgets to follow you round and make you look tall? Do you? Should’ve been listening to the show!

And the news? Boring. Fact. We prefer channelling a 16th Century ghost to tell us what’s really happening, courtesy of It’s Fate magazine (£1.95, although it should be free and compulsory). This week, we revealed 19 year old Jessica’s companionship to new friends is down to the fact they were all beheaded in 1876 and how Karen, 37 from Worcester, often feels guilt because in a past life, she accidentally killed 521 people. In a tunnel. Bona Fide facts, ladies & gentlemen.

Our guest this week was Lesley Brewis. Mastermind Lesley has appeared on numerous TV quiz shows, runs quizzes throughout the UK and with her husband managed to clean out a pub quiz machine to the tune of £20000. She also admitted to getting Richard Madley over excited once. Lesley used her expertise to test John and Peter’s brain power, John coming in as the champ after Pete got in a tangle over Fererro Roche. In a bit of ‘quiz pro quo’, Lesley then took on the Make My Gag challenge, but got beat by Pete to finish off John's jokes. Is Pete invincible?
