The satirical Channel 4 show, hosted by Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker, takes an alternative look at the biggest events of the previous week and has a reputation for exposing the foibles of those in power and for fearlessly tackling social injustice. 

The show's official YouTube account has since uploaded four clips of highlights from last night.

David opened up last night's show with a tongue-in-cheek reference to Ewan McGregor's refusal to appear on a breakfast show hosted by Piers Morgan following that latter's inflammatory comments about the worldwide Women's Marches. Watch the clip here:
