With today being National Pun Day, Bob Mills was in the mood for some pun-nishment (sorry, that one was rubbish) on talkRADIO this afternoon.

So who better to provide some punnage than comedian and actress Samantha Baines, who is competing in the final of the UK Pun Championshiop of the Leicester Comedy Festival this evening?

She told Bob: "I am in the final this evening. It's being held at the big one - De Montfordt Hall in Leicester. 

"I'm the only woman in the history of the pun championships to perform in the final. For the final, we've been given 20 subjects and we have to write five on each. 

"I've written a hundred puns, on Thailand in a beach - which has been quite nice. 

"I brainstorm ideas around topic and I research the facts."

She also provided her professional opinion on some of Bob's own puns and told him how to do it.

Listen above.
