In order to keep up the joke of the posh, uptight father sitting alongside his young, popular son they had guest Jeremy Paxman and Danny Dyer.

The public were no help in working out whether this was in fact amusing or just a bit awkward and boring.
People were on Twitter giving their 140 character reviews and were as divided us us:
