Jonathan Ross and Frank Skinner confirmed as team captains on ITV’s Don’t Ask Me Ask Britain.
“An hour of live prime time television completely led by an unpredictable public vote. What larks!” – Frank Skinner
ITV have this week confirmed that Jonathan Ross, best known for his self titled chat show and Frank Skinner, host of the BBC’s Room 101, will be the team captains on comedy game show, Don’t Ask Me Ask Britain.
Hosted by Alexander Armstrong, the live and interactive six part series asks the viewers at home to vote along on opinion-based topics, via a downloadable app. Team captains Ross (pictured top) and Skinner will go head to head to try and second-guess what the nation will answer.
Don’t Ask Me Ask Britain will pose questions live to viewers on everything from “What would you do if you ran over the neighbours cat?” to moral dilemmas; “If you saw someone leave £50 in a cash point, what would you do?” and more topical subjects like “Do you think we should have another Scottish Referendum?”
The series has been commissioned for ITV by Asif Zubairy, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment. Mike Benson, Managing Director of Chalkboard, will executive produce the series, with Warwick Banks as series producer.
“I’m thrilled to be involved with the show – I love the idea of using the latest technology to get to the heart of the matter, and am nosey enough to want to know what the rest of the country think about things – from big political questions to those small challenges that we face every day. I can’t wait” – Jonathan Ross
