When asked how he was feeling Mock the week In the end, Hugh Dennis, a regular panelist on the show, said: “Quite sad, although after 17 years you have to be proud that we’ve had such a long run.

“There were a lot more bits – there were different impromptu games, each panel member had to do stand-up, and there was a much longer ‘Scenes we would like to see’ at the end, so I think that intimidated me quite a lot of things, that we all had to do and wondered if it would work.
