Simon Amstell is Grimmy's special guest today - and after spending about 20minutes sitting in reception, we finally get him into the studio! He tells us about his brand new TV show which he's worried nobody will watch as it's being aired on New Years Eve at 9pm :(

Plus as it's nearly Christmas, we play a special game of 'Play Your Christmas Cards Right!'. See what we've done?!
