Two teams led by the captains, comedians David Mitchell and Lee Mack, reveal strange and sometimes awkward personal memories to each other. The goal of the game is to attempt to convince the opposing team of your story`s truthfulness, while not all of the stories told are indeed true. Besides the captain, two celebrity guests contend on each team. There are several rounds to the game – “Home truths”, “This is my...” and “Quick-fire lies”.

The audience share of the show has peaked a number of times at an impressive 19%. The selection of guests is praised, team captains and the host are very entertaining, and the far-fetched statements are fun to consider.
