Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are to host a new chat show for ITV.
The presenting duo will preside over a daily talk format that has been earmarked for a slot in the broadcaster’s daytime schedule which has been subject to several revamps of late. As well as catching up with some of the nation’s best-loved celebrities, the pair will meet quirky individuals from around the country.
Mel said: “I’ve been asked to host a show with somebody called PORKIN? PARKIN..? PORTLY..? I’ve never heard of her – but I’ll be very happy to meet her soon.” “I very much look forward to working with Mel again, although, for legal reasons, we will now be at least one metre apart at all times.” added Sue
Princess Productions and Square Peg TV will collaborate on the project for ITV which the broadcaster’s Director of Daytime, Helen Warner says she is “thrilled” to be bringing to the schedule.
Thirty sixty-minute episodes have been ordered.
