Kanye, Ian,  and Next Stop … Cambridge are all names suggested for the new royal baby in the forthcoming episode of Have I Got New For You.

The panel, which includes regular team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Meton, as well as comedian James Acaster and political correspondent Beth Rigby, also suggests The Baby Formerly Known As Prince and simply sticking with Royal Baby.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have instead named the baby Louis Arthur Charles.

The episode of the satirical quiz show, filmed before the announcement was made, is guest hosted by Tracey Ullman.

It will also address Home Secretary Amber Rudd’s handling of the Windrush scandal and the relationship between Donald Trump and French president Emmanuel Macron.

Have I Got News For You will air on BBC One on April 27 at 9pm.
