The series was devised and written by Clary with fellow comedian and writer Paul Merton, and was produced by Clary's production company Wonderdog Productions (named after his beloved pet whippet, "Fanny the Wonderdog", who also regularly appeared on the show).
Clary was accompanied by two co-hosts: his "steadfastly heterosexual" pianist, Russell Churney, who provided musical accompaniment and a foil for Clary's teasing; and announcer/scorekeeper/assistant "Hugh Jelly" (played by actor Philip Herbert) – a large man with a booming voice, usually dressed almost as flamboyantly as Clary himself. Hugh Jelly appeared from the second episode onwards, while Clary's assistant in the first episode was "Barbara Lomax" (played by Jane Janovic). Further musical accompaniment was provided by the duo Barb Jungr & Michael Parker, who assisted Clary when he performed a musical number at the end of each show.
Various celebrity guests also made appearances, usually assisting in a game round, including Harry Enfield, Nicholas Parsons, Dora Bryan, Barbara Windsor, Fenella Fielding, Bill Oddie, The Beverley Sisters, and Mike Smith (who had worked with Clary previously on the ITV comedy game show Trick or Treat and was a regular target of Clary's jokes).
Clary, in customary full make-up and dressed in a new outrageous outfit each week, would select contestants for the night's show from the audience members queuing outside. Once in the studio, contestants would be introduced by him and were then subjected to some light-hearted teasing based on their personal details.
