Get ready to start seeing – or at least hearing – double.

Each week, this show – hosted by Alexander Armstrong – sees captains Rory Bremner and Debra Stephenson (pictured above) work alongside another top mimic.

'People enjoy impressions and they enjoy panel shows, so we’re putting those two things together,' explains Rory of the format.

'Depending on whether we’re doing the very fast-paced, one-word impressions, we can be doing anything from 25 to 45 impressions each in an episode,' adds Debra.

Tonight, Rory and Debra are joined by Jess Robinson and Luke Kempner.
