‘ALEXANDER Armstrong, one half of the comedy duo Armstrong & Miller, takes over from Jimmy Carr in the Have I Got News For You hot seat tonight.

‘Well, I can’t be the compere and be a team member every week as well’

Carr, co-presenter of Channel 4’s excellent Your Face Or Mine, meanwhile can be found later this evening on the same channel hosting a game show called Distraction, in which four contestants have to answer questions while being put off by various often painful challenges.

On ITV at the same time is The Frank Skinner Show, which is moved temporarily from its normal Monday night home because of Prime Suspect.

That means for one week at least it will go head-to-head with Jonathan Ross and looking at the respective line-ups this is not a battle Wossie can be too confident of winning.
