Steve Wright, one of nation's favourite DJs, is a man with a brain the size of a small planet. Unfortunately for him, this brain appears to be filled with trivia that would make Magnus Magnuson green with envy. Fortunately for us, he has decided to let his brain gush out into another hilarious, fascinating and informative compendium of strange and bizarre facts from around the world.
For example, did you know that:
- Worcestershire sauce is basically anchovy ketchup?
- They add liquid detergent to our favourite bevvy in beer commercials to make it foam more?
- Austria was the first country ever to use postcards?
- A hippo can open its mouth wide enough to fit Little Ant and Dec inside?
Bringing together more of the strangest and most hilarious factoids from Steve's show, he provides explanations, commentary and anecdotes to enhance this entertaining collection of hundreds of fun facts.
