Channel 4 comedy favourite Jimmy Carr gets a new gameshow where contestants have to add to the prize pot by correctly answering questions based on things they've been told earlier in the show.

It isn't as easy as it sounds, though - their memories could be tested on chats between Carr and the contestants, parts of other questions they've already been asked, or even things that happened while the cameras weren't rolling.

One Night In - Channel 4 - 9pm
