John Bishop Joins The Nightly Show Line-Up for ITV
“The Nightly Show is a great concept and I like the idea of doing something completely different for a week. I also like the idea of the rotating hosts and following David Walliams means I can have all the beauty products he leaves in the dressing room!” – John Bishop
ITV has announced John Bishop as one of the hosts for The Nightly Show, the brand new week night entertainment series going out instead of the television legend that is News At Ten every weeknight at 10pm this coming spring.
Bishop joins already announced hosts, David Walliams and Gordon Ramsay for the 30-minute daily entertainment show being produced for ITV by Second Act Productions. The series is stripped over five nights a week for an eight week run, featuring a different big name host each week, more names will be announced soon.
ITV’s News at Ten is being shunted once more.
The famous faces hosting the show during the two months on air will oversee a high tempo mixture of topical monologue, studio games, celebrity guests, experts and VT’s. The Nightly Show will be recorded ‘as live’ each day at 6pm in a converted studio at a central London location.
The programme is the first major nightly chat and entertainment format since Channel 5 aired The Jack Docherty Show, and subsequent similar replacements, in the 1990s and early 2000s.
Last month UKTV announced that John Bishop is to continue with his chat show for their channel W. John Bishop: In Conversation With… has been recommissioned for a second and third series consisting of twenty further editions.
