Wall of Fame
David Walliams hosted a Sky1 show titled 'Wall of Fame' during 2011. And it's fair to say
it's unlike any topical entertainment panel show you've ever seen
So, what is it all about, I hear you ask?
Taking up the hot seat, David Walliams will preside over two teams of three
in a celebrity panel show that tackles the latest stories to set tongues wagging
– from the latest YouTube phenomenon through to celebrity tittle tattle - if the
nation have been gossiping about it, the players will need to know all about it.
At the opening of each show, a giant wall featuring
the 25 famous faces will be unveiled. As the focal point for the show this WALL
OF FAME will spark off lines of questioning for a series of riotous rounds that
will see will see panellists playing merry hell with the biggest stories of the
Anyone who’s anyone will be up on the wall and
Walliams will hold court in a contest that finds out which team has their finger
on the pulse of pop culture. He commented: “I’m looking forward to taking
control of the Wall of Fame, my new weekly, newsy, quizzy, gossipy entertainment
show. This may not be hard news but I shall nevertheless be taking my quiz
master role most seriously…with lots of laughter.”
The tongue in cheek topical show is produced for Sky
1 HD by CPL Productions, producers of A League Of Their Own - the executive
producers are Murray Boland, Danielle Lux and Jim Pullin with Chris Curley the
series producer. The series was commissioned by Duncan Gray, Head of
Entertainment for Sky.
Let's meet the panel...
David Walliams is used to putting up with troublesome
comedy partners. So he'd better prepare for Jack Dee, Kate Garroway, Tamara
Ecclestone and Andrew Maxwell.
They've all been confirmed as series regulars. Each
week they'll be joined by two guests to complete their teams of three and the
first show of the series sees N-Dubz singer Tulisa, in her first TV appearance
since her appointment to The X Factor judging panel, and fresh from a nationwide
tour highly acclaimed stand-up comedian Micky Flanagan.
The regular panellists and their guests will battle
it out each week to see who will triumph in a contest to find out which team has
their finger on the pulse of pop culture and current affairs in a series of
riotous rounds centred around a wall of the 25 most talked about faces of that
Kate Garraway and Andrew Maxwell pair up on one team.
Kate, no stranger to discussing the latest celebrity gossip having interviewed
some of the biggest names in showbusiness, commented: "In my day job I spend my
life interviewing all the people who have made the headlines so I keep a keen
eye on the news. David is going to be a great host and I am looking forward to
joining my other panellists to talk about all the faces who have made the
stories that week."
Fast paced, internationally renowned Irish comedian
Andrew Maxwell will be bringing his quick witted A game to dissect each week's
news headlines, he said: “As a news bug myself, I am really looking forward to
sitting on a panel week in and week out with British comedy giants David and
Jack and discussing all the week’s news and gossip. It’s a really exciting show
and I’m delighted to be part of it”
The opposing team will be made up of model and
television presenter Tamara Ecclestone and the nation’s favourite dead-pan comic
Jack Dee. More used to being written about, in Wall of Fame Tamara and Jack will
be turning the tables and commenting on who else has joined them in being the
talk of the town that week.
So, join David Walliams every Friday night at 10pm on
