Preview – Have I Got News for You

Ian Hislop and Paul Merton

Last week’s episode seemed unfazed by the recent comments by Hislop and Merton about women appearing on the programme. This may change tonight as there’s a woman hosting.

It seems to be a bit of a quiz theme in tonight’s choice of guests. Victoria Coren Mitchell is hosting tonight, with one of the contestants being Richard Osman. The other guest is the crime novelist Val McDermid, who is no stranger to quizzes herself as she is a regular on Radio 4 cryptic Round Britain Quiz.

Have I Got News for You is on BBC One at 21.30.
