Hosted by Sandi Toksvig, Can I Improve My Memory? sees 5 celebrities enter a month-long competition designed to supercharge their memories. Each week, they must learn hundreds of facts about subjects they previously knew nothing about, plus face a fiendish quick-fire round. The celebrities are coached in memory techniques by memory grandmasters – with astonishing results. 

Quizzed by Sandi, the celebrities’ memories are then put on the spot in a rigorous quiz. Across four knockout episodes, the memory challenges get harder as the group is whittled down to just one celebrity, who is crowned champion by Sandi.
