This Week: Richard and Judy, Maguire and Letts, Jennie Bond and Ollie Grender

The TW dream team is reunited for one more night.

The big occasion is finally here. It's time to raise a flute of the finest blue stuff and celebrate as the nation's favourite couple come together.

No, not Wills and Kate (that's tomorrow), but Britannia's beloved twosome - Michael Portillo and Diane Abbott!

Yes, your favourite couple will be snuggling up under a blanket, as they camp out on the Mall for a fine view of the proceedings. Diane may just bring her tiara.

As if that wasn't exciting enough, Andrew's invited ANOTHER set of lovebirds to join the Westminster camp-out… Richard and Judy!

With their flags and pompoms, they'll be talking to Itchy and Scratchy about the state of the coalition marriage, and finding out if Michael's made a decision to that pressing political proposal - the alternative vote.

They've known each other since childhood, but how much do Michael and Diane really know about each other?

We'll find out, with our very own 'Mr & Mrs' quiz!

For all this, plus Jennie Bond, Olly Grender and two round-up films from the alliance of Quentin Letts and Kevin Maguire.

There's no Question Time tonight, so we are on 20 minutes EARLIER than normal at 11.15pm if you are in England and Scotland, or 11.45pm in Wales and Northern Ireland.

There's no show next Thursday, as we are making way for an election and referendum results programme, but we will be back on May 12.
