Robert Rinder is stepping outside of his famous ITV courtroom to pop over to Channel 4 for an end-of-year review show.
Robert Rinder is best-known for his ITV series’ Judge Rinder and Judge Rinder’s Crime Stories.
“I am so excited to get Rob’s authentic voice on Channel 4. Intelligent, witty, provocative and thought-provoking, he is the perfect host to really delve into a year of madness and hyperbole and find the glimmers of hope and humour.” – Syeda Irtizaali, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment Channel 4
Robert will, in his famous style, take an uncompromising look at 2018. Rob Rinder’s Good Year Bad Year, is a one-hour special which will see Rob cast his razor sharp legal mind, clear minded analysis and acerbic tongue over the events and funniest moments of 2018 to judge once and for all whether the year will be chalked up as being a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ one.
Accompanied by a host of celebrity guests including Anthony Scaramucci, Deborah Frances-White, Ed Balls and Clare Balding, Rob will delve deep into all the news stories, people and talking points of the year. Perceptive and funny, Rob will make us all reconsider what we previously thought about 2018 with a fresh take on the big themes of the year while also bringing us the hilarious tiny details we’ve already forgotten in our post-Christmas booze haze.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen the more informal side of the ITV legal expert. Judge Rinder threw off his Judge’s gear for 2016’s Strictly Come Dancing, making it to Blackpool, but departed in week eleven of the celebrity ballroom battle. His time on the BBC One series saw him a favourite with viewers, when he faced judges of a different kind.
“2018 has been the spewing drunk uncle of years, when reason died and was replaced by shouting. Politics is no longer rational argument but a Sunday afternoon wrestling match. The year has left everyone sick, exhausted, and so angry they’re not even talking to each other. It’s basically been like a year of Boxing Day. I’m going to buck that trend, smash through the echo chambers and burst the filter bubbles, whilst playing some incredibly funny clips.” – Robert Rinder
Robert is a star in the Tower Ballroom Blackpool for Strictly Come Dancing’s semi-final of 2016.
Rob Rinder’s Good Year Bad Year is produced by Expectation, Executive Producer Ben Wicks.
