Episode 1
 
The Imitation Game is a high-energy panel show for ITV hosted by Alexander Armstrong, that sees team captains and top impressionists Rory Bremner and Debra Stephenson lead teams of the UK’s favourite mimics and comedians in a number of fast-paced games and challenges.
 
Each week, both teams go head-to-head as they re-enact iconic movie scenes, re-voice news footage, blast out some surprising cover versions and put unlikely words in the mouths of all kinds of celebrities.
 
This week, Rory Bremner and Debra Stephenson are joined by special guests Luke Kempner and Jess Robinson to perform a series of comedy games. Featuring a dazzling array of voices, some horribly miscast movies, show-stopping musical impersonations and an hilarious attempt to date Christopher Biggins.
