UKTV channel ‘W’ is to air a three part series which sees celebrities become a friendly shoulder to cry on.
It’s said that a problem shared is a problem halved. Celebrity Advice Bureau will test that theory as a star-studded cast of celebrities are put to work as agony aunts and uncles in each hour long edition.
They’ll try and solve problems ranging from the everyday to the downright bizarre. Drawing on their personal experiences of disguising killer hangovers, changing dirty nappies at 3am and seeking revenge on cheating boyfriends the celebrities in the advice bureau will show themselves to be as flawed and as frank as the rest of the viewing public as they weigh-up each dilemma.
With a cast that includes Rick Edwards, Alice Levine and Laura Jackson, David Baddiel, Ellie Taylor and Matt Richardson, Fay Ripley, Louis Walsh, Ricky Tomlinson, Roisin Conaty, plus Richard and Chloe Madeley the advice that the bureau dishes out could be wise, poignant or just plain bonkers. Either way it is guaranteed to be hilarious.
The series was commissioned by UKTV’s Hilary Rosen. It is exec produced by Voltage’s Jon Alwen and the series producer is Chris Little.
