Recent Hotel GB presenter and comedian Paddy McGuinness goes where Chris Tarrant, Keith Floyd and Clive James have previously stepped with a new Channel 4 show which delves into the world of bizarre television.
Paddy says, “I can’t wait to start on Paddy’s TV Guide. It incorporates three of my favourite things. Laughing, sitting down and watching telly.”
Offering a guide to life through TV, each week, Paddy focuses on a different topic using crazy TV clips to explore everything from romance to family and Great Britain. Inviting the audience into his glamorous Bolton pad, Paddy will treat them to the good, the bad and the ugly from the world of television that’s he’s recorded onto his Paddy Player.
Michael Kelpie, Creative Director at the production company adds, “The chance to work with Paddy McGuinness and Channel 4 was irresistible. We are thrilled to be making Paddy’s TV Guide. The team are loving every minute of it and we hope the viewers do too!”
In his quest to unearth the funniest and most outrageous clips, Paddy has left no stone unturned – searching everywhere from mainstream terrestrial broadcasters to the darkest recesses of satellite and cable. Musical cop dramas? Fish tank documentaries? Anything goes. Paddy has sifted through it all to find those elusive nuggets of TV gold and offer up his own hilarious thoughts and unique commentary on these unseen gems.
Paddy’s TV Guide is produced by ITV Studios – who made the original ‘…On TV’ series fronted famously by Clive James in the 1980s and Chris Tarrant in the 1990s.
