Speaking to BT TV Ian said: Hes done it so often, so hes an incredibly good host and he was very good as a guest. I remember one of the first times he came on as a guest I thought how effortless he was.

Recently, he was very funny about the Duke of Edinburgh trying to be polite to the Chinese leader on a state visit and the Queen having to tape over his mouth. He doesnt mind a bit of trouble.

He told Grayson Perry that his make-up was no good, which takes a certain amount of bravery.

Who are the guests this series?

Alongside Martin Clunes, Ian and Paul will be joined by comedian Sara Pascoe and Lib Dem MP Layla Moran.

alking about his ideal guest bookings, Ian said: I think it would be quite funny to get Jacob Rees Mogg to come on and see if he wants to lie across two chairs. And then we could have Boris on, and he could just lie.

Lady Hale, now thats my ideal guest. You know, Spiderwoman.
