Ian Hislop

Ian Hislop is a familiar face on panel show Have I Got News For You, but he is a man of many talents.

He graduated from Oxford in 1981 and immediately began working at Private Eye magazine.

He was made editor five years later, a move which was met with opposition from journalists Peter McKay and Nigel Dempster.

As editor, Ian sacked both men from the magazine without hesitation. He is also reported to be the most sued man in English legal history.

He made his TV debut in 1983, on Channel 4 chat show Loose Talk, and has been a team captain on Have I Got News for You since it began airing in 1990.

On tonight’s The One Show he’ll be discussing dissent, satire and libel.
