Would I Lie to You?

Inspired by the BBC One comedy show, we’ll test the fake-news-detecting skills of our panel and audience. Can our panel of seasoned journalists fool the audience with bluster and bluff, fakery and fabrication? Will our audience pick the true news stories from the pork pies?

With Brett McLeod, Gaven Morris, Michelle Griffin and more to be announced.
