QI: Pre-show banter

Previously unseen footage

QI has released some of the pre-show banter between panelists Sandi Toksvig and panellists on the new Q series of the programme.

Alan Davies, Susan Calman, Phill Jupitus, Jason Manford and Aisling Be a are among those who feature.

And Josh Widdicombe suggests producers are pulling a fast one by buying Christmas jumpers for the festive episode – then returning them to the store for a refund after the recording.

The show is on BBC Two Fridays at 10pm.
