O'Briain to host right-on quiz

Dara O'Briain is to host a new Radio 4 quiz show mocking political correctness.

Celebrity contestants in the show will have to rewrite songs so as not to cause offence, and grapple with uncomfortable silences.

But a BBC spokesman insited "it will be OK to laugh" at Political Correctness Gone Mad.

The Live Floor Show host will record a pilot edition of the show in London next months.

For tickets to the taping, on March 22, visit the BBC ticket unit's website.
