TERMS & CONDITIONS
The celebs start with 100 points. If they get away with their fib (about anything from where they grew up to a hidden talent – and only PG-rated topics), they get 10 points. If they get caught out in their lie, 10 points are docked from their score. And host Chris can throw them a bonus point or two for things like singing, jokes and dancing on tables. The celeb with the most points at the end of the episode is crowned champiom.
Episodes are broken into four segments and at the end of each, the celeb reveals if their story was fact or fiction by pressing a green (yes) or red (no) button. The sections are split in to Storytelling, Six Degrees Of Separation, Photo Identification and Cross-Examination.
Guests on the show include entertainment presenter Roxy Burger, actress Bridget Pike (Carol on medical drama series Jacob’s Cross, 2007-2012), voiceover star Sinazo Yolwa from talkshow The Real Goboza (2007-current) plus comedians like Kurt Schoonraad and Rob Van Vuuren.
