Competing on the show will be Twink's moustache, Joe Duffy's sense of righteous indignation, Gerry Ryan's diet pills, a TG4 weather presenter and a bag of cranky hammers.
And now may come the riposte; "Ah, sure it's for charity!" Charity eh? Can I ask you this then? On what slab of moral high ground do you balance yourself whilst crossing the road to avoid a chugger or two?
