There's a brand new series of the hilarious Drunk History starting tonight where comedians get very drunk in order to tell a true historical story.

As they narrate these stories in a very slurred way, a host of well-known actors, celebrities and other comedians act out the new version of events – however blurry these may be.

First up it's Michelle Keegan starring as Queen Eizabeth I alongside Jack Whitehall's Walter Raleigh in Jimmy Carr's retelling of The Rise and Fall of Sir Walter Raleigh.

Jimmy will also give us the story of Robin Hood and Maid Marion with Emma Bunton and Matthew Baynton acting it all out.
