During Sunday’s episode, Channel 4 hosts Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy kicked off the show by inviting their guests to the programme. Their guests included Miranda star Sarah Hadland, actress Susanna Fielding, Ghosts actor Kiell Smith-Bynoe and singer Imelda May. Katie Piper also appeared via video link to chat about her new storybook collection and podcast. However, viewers were left distracted by Simon’s bizarre sweetcorn dish.
