We Need Answers, Series 2 Episode 5 of 13

Duration: 30 minutes

Anarchic comedy game show in which celebrity guests answer questions set by the public.

Mark Watson hosts, Tim Key is in the questionmaster's chair and Alex Horne provides expert analysis from a booth as two celebrities battle it out to be crowned the winner and avoid the shame of donning 'The Clogs of Defeat'.

Former EastEnder and comic actress Tracy-Ann Oberman competes against best-selling author of The Long Firm and He Kills Coppers, Jake Arnott.

The rules are simple - contestants must match their answer to the one given by a text answering service. Questions range from 'How many pints of cider make up one portion of my fruit intake a day?' to 'How long would it take to drink Lake Windermere?'.

In the cunning physical challenge which pits the contestants against each other, Tracey-Ann takes on Jake in composing a sentence using alphabet spaghetti.
