Robert Webb's Hope for a House Above Notting Hill

Comedy news quiz hosted by David Mitchell, which plays on the fact that some news stories are so hard to believe you'd think they'd been made up. In this show some of them have been.

Three celebrity contestants - a mixture of comedians, smart celebrities and wildcard bookings - are locked away in a media-free zone - 'the bubble' - for four days. No phones, no television, no internet access. When they're brought out into the studio, they're shown a series of news reports, headlines and images from TV, newspapers and celebrity gossip magazines. They have to identify the true stories from the fakes, but because they've been away and out of touch - just like when you come back from a holiday - they'll believe almost anything. Truth is so often stranger than anything they could possibly imagine.

The guests are Miranda Hart, Shappi Khorsandi and Robert Webb.
