David Walliams to host new panel show

Friday November 16, 2012

Funnyman David Walliams has lots to celebrate as he announces his impending fatherhood as well as a new hosting role for a Saturday night comedy programme.

The comedian, who revealed he is expecting his first child with model wife Lara Stone, is also set to host a patriotic quiz called I Love My Country on BBC1. The programme will challenge teams to see just how much they know about their homeland.

The Streets frontman Frank Skinner and comedian Mickey Flanagan will be regular team captains on the show, whilst Jamelia will front an in-house band on the panel programme.

Based on a Dutch show of the same style, the programme is set to kick off next year.
