The quiz that finally decides: who's the most Average Jolene, and who's the ultimate Maverick Matilda?

Sarah Millican picks through her guests' minds and secret routines - using simple surveys from the Great British Public on childhood habits, daily rituals, and preferred cheeses - to discover which of them fits the pattern of the average person on the street, and which is so far from the norm we really ought to be worried.

Featuring Kathy Burke, Tom Allen, Jenny Eclair, Alun Cochrane, Sandi Toksvig, Angela Barnes, Phil Wang, Lucy Beaumont, Sara Pascoe, and Kerry Godliman, as well as Mark Watson, Susan Calman, Jo Brand, Sara Cox, Daliso Chaponda, Scarlett Moffatt, Sindhu Vee, Shappi Khorsandi, and Josie Long, expect skeletons to come tumbling out of closets as Sarah uncovers her panel's surprising quirks and hilarious anecdotes before revealing who is distinctly normal, and who gets to wear the badge of True Maverick.

Perfect for fans of Sarah Millican's Support Group, Dilemma, Joe Lycett's Obsessions, and Tom Allen is Not Actually Very Nice, and for anyone who wants to be reminded that it's good to be different.
