After last night’s Have I Got News For You
I’ve updated the gender balance spreadsheet again. The figures now are:
23.26% of guests overall and 23.81% of guests this series are women.
22.78% of guest hosts overall and 2 out of 7 this season are women.
Last night’s show was the second in a row to feature a female guest.
Baroness Trumpington is the oldest guest the show has had, and (according to Wikipedia) also the oldest ever female minister.
I thought it was quite a good edition last night. It was a bit slow to start, but Jack Whitehall found his feet as host after a while and both guests got to contribute and be funny.
