Michael McIntyre’s new sofa will officially not be left empty as the comedian’s first talk show guests have been revealed.
“From my very first conversation I remember thinking, ‘This should be televised!’” McIntyre said about the forthcoming six-part series earlier this year. “Well, now the British Broadcasting Corporation has made my dream a reality. I am overwhelmingly excited about meeting and having fun with my favourite celebrated people.”
McIntyre will interview three high-profile celebrity guests each 45-minute episode, injecting his unique brand of observational comedy into the shows.
Charlotte Moore, a controller for BBC One, described the soon-to-be host as “one of the country’s leading comedians” when the chat show was announced.
