Only Connect For Comic Relief, 2015
Thursday, 5 March 2015
It’s that time of year again!
Last November, guest team captains Patrick Marber and Professor Steve Jones did battle in Only Connect for Children In Need, more than ably assisted by brilliant quizzers Robert Peston, Sophie Grigson, Kevin Eldon and Kate Mosse. On that occasion, Marber, Peston and Grigson were triumphant.
As is traditional, the captains will meet again with new teams for Comic Relief. Excellent new guest quizzers include Steve Pemberton; stats collectors (of which Only Connect is proud to number many amongst its fans) may be interested to tune in and see how his performance compares with fellow League Of Gentlemen member Mark Gatiss, who played Only Connect for Sport Relief in 2012.
