If laughing burns calories, staff at the Marketing Communications Company (MCC) may suddenly get thinner.

MCC account director Paul Wooding is about to make his first appearance as a stand-up comedian on stage at the famous Covent Garden Comedy Store as part of ITV's reality show The Test. The programme has been following Wooding in his quest to become a stand-up comedian for two months.
