Alexander Armstrong's Big Ask (Dave, Tuesday, 10pm) | 3. Think about flavours Foods can be heavy but low in flavour or light with lots of flavour. This is the same for wines. A great example is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, which is light wine but packed full of flavour and matches perfectly with a Caesar salad.

Given the fact most pretentious aftershave and perfume ads are ripe for lampooning, it's little wonder Alexander Armstrong decided to poke fun at them while plugging this new series.

| 4. Sweet wines and salty cheeses are a match made in heaven. Perl Las, Stilton and Roquefort are enhanced by sweetness, so match Perl Las with a Sauternes or stilton with a Port | 5. Match sweet wines with sweet food The Pointless frontman has proved to be a natural panel-game host, as he's proved with several editions of Have I Got News For You?, the aforementioned BBC One teatime staple, and, of course, this series.

The format is as safe as houses: three comic guests, a host and a few rib-tickling questions have worked with for the revamped Room 101 and The Matt Lucas Awards, so little wonder this series adheres to the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" mantra. Said funny people Russell Kane, Reginald D Hunter and Susan Calman will be devising questions before answering them on their super expensive tablets.

Why they didn't just use a sheet of paper to scribble down their answer is anyone's guess.
