A fun panel game show is returning to Cromer Pier, to raise laughter - and cash for carers.
Should the Team Think? will feature local writer and broadcaster Keith Skipper, BBC Look East's Carol Bundock, all around entertainer Olly Day who stars in the pier's Christmas show, and - new this year - Nigel Pickover the editor of the News' sister paper the EDP.
The panellists will compete for chuckles as they navigate rounds including Call Me an Old Bluffer, Just a Minute and a Half, Would I Fib to You?, and the limerick challenge, where they are asked to compose witty ditties using Norfolk place names.
Proceeds will again go to the EDP We Care Appeal, which supports unpaid carers across the county. Last year it raised £4,258.
Mr Skipper said: 'One of the first things Nigel did when he became editor last year was to come to the last show. He claimed he laughed the whole way through, so we decided to get him on the panel this year.'

He added: 'It's a send-up of all the panel games in history. It offers a very good excuse to get rid of a lot of old Norfolk squit that has been simmering away over the year.'
Mr Pickover added: 'I'm sure we will have some great fun celebrating our wonderful county, while raising money for a fantastic cause, and what better location than Cromer Pier, a great north Norfolk destination?'

The station's editor David Clayton, will chair the evening and seek to keep the panellists in order.
He said: 'We have been doing this panel game for over 20 years. We retired it three years ago, but we brought it back because of public demand. It's based on every other panel game you have ever seen, but with a Norfolk twist.'
