Lily Allen, Alan Sugar and Sir Terry Wogan for Michael McIntyre's first chat show
The comedian will take to his sofa for the debut show on Monday 10 March
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.
Watch out Jonathan Ross and Graham Norton...
