Tonight’s QI is best summed up by quoting a single Tweet: “Ed Balls”.
Yes, the former shadow chancellor and Strictly Come Dancing star is joining Sandi and Alan tonight (given that they had Gyles Brandreth last week, looks like they need to balance out the Conservative and Labour ex-MPs). Sara Pascoe and Johnny Vegas complete the line-up as they discuss the most useful organ in the body, who children’s parties can cause you to prematurely age, and the worst ever ship design.
Of the highlights tonight, look out for Balls’s odd line in animal impressions.
QI is on BBC Two at 22.00.
