About the show

Putting facts to the test

Did you know that dog urine glows under UV light? Or that human earlobes are in a direct line with their nipples?

In each episode of Duck Quacks Don't Echo, three celebrities bring a fascinating fact to the table, and with the help of the in-house boffins, attempt to prove to their fellow panellists – and the nation – whether or not it's true.

No stone is left unturned in pursuit of the truth, be it supergluing Melanie C to a ceiling upside down, baking Miranda Hart into a meringue or Rhod Gilbert racing a prawn on a treadmill.

Find out whether laughing 100 times is equivalent to 10 minutes on an exercise bike, whether there is any truth behind the controversial claim that women are better at multi-tasking than men, or that contrary to popular belief, it's possible to sneeze with your eye's open.
