The Weakest Link .. 29 December 2022
Tucked into this year's Christmas TV schedules is a celebrity run of The Weakest Link with new-ish host, Romesh Ranganathan.

We had an early heads-up that Lee was to feature from the man himself when he tweeted from the set during filming on 15 November!

Joining him in this day's line-up were choirmaster supremo Gareth Malone (who Lee grabbed a cheeky selfie with!), singer Brian McFadden, comedians Sindhu Vee, Kiri Pritchard-McLean and Desiree Burch, Paralympic athlete Lauren Steadman and radio host Sam Thompson.

The length of the video edit below will give you some idea as to how well Lee did... let's just say it was a charming but brief appearance! He looked great behind the first podium, answering his questions decisively if not always accurately... his answer to the first was, he confessed later, something of a brain fade moment and will, I suspect, stay with him for some time - I wouldn't be surprised to hear Dick and Dom somehow weaving it into the panto banter in the final shows this weekend. It was far from the only daft answer of the show, but unfortunately for Lee, stood out in an unusually high-scoring first round and stayed in the minds of his fellow contestants when the time came to vote off the weakest link.

The full programme will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer for over a year from broadcast and you can watch the edited 'Meady bits' below. There are also a few screencaps - click the pic up top to view.
