Comedy legend Lee Mack hosts the quiz show where 100 contestants start with one burning ambition - to make it to the end and try to win up to 100,000 pounds. This is the show where the questions have nothing to do with remembering facts and are all about logic and common sense - it’s the ultimate leveller of a quiz show, and it’s also one that gives the whole family a chance to test themselves against the country.
