I wonder if Coren's attempts at quirky banter and humour are as unbearable to the contestants in real life as they are to me through the telly.

Apparently they've been having serious trouble getting contestants,

Excellent, gives my application a better chance of getting through! (Though seriously, I'd hate to see this dropped from TV, probably the only thing I watch with any kind of regularity these days)

I like the quirky banter.

Me too. I really liked the running joke in a previous series of the two question editors actually being one person. I even enjoy the Portillo jokes.

Next, Michael Portillo will be journeying through the countryside looking for a cosy dwelling in which to spend his vacation.

She's normally better at geeing up the reluctant introverts.

She didn't count them in like she usually does. There wasn't a clear signal when to start, so they came in weakly.

Me too.

On Monday’s episode the winning team should’ve had a point deducted when their captain said “Staying Alive” instead of “Stayin’ Alive” in the missing vowels round.
