The Big Fat Quiz of the Year is an end-of-year quiz show that attempts to recap the last year's news stories. Six celebrity panelists compete to prove who was paying attention for the past year, or at least who failed to pay attention in the funniest way. Comedian Jimmy Carr plays host, judge, and favorite punching bag.
Richard Ayoade, David Mitchell, Mel B, Micky Flanagan, Sarah Millican and Kevin Bridges compete in a quiz that covers pop culture events of 2014. Helping them along the way are Michael Palin, Rio Ferdinand, The Inbetweeners, Lily Allen and more guests who have made the news in the past year.
Jimmy is joined by different teams of celebrities to find out who can remember the most about this year's events. Jack Whitehall and Micky Flanagan, Dara O Briain and Kristen Schaal, and Noel Fielding and Richard Ayoade are amongst those taking part.
