Patrick Kielty returns home to host a brand new BBC Northern Ireland studio comedy chat show which clicks through his guests’ online activities.
The new six-part series sees Patrick back in the BBC’s Blackstaff studios in Belfast interviewing celebrity guests about the contents of their internet history – weird websites, most watched virals, odd blogs and questions asked of their favourite search engine.
Among those celebrities facing Patrick on the sofa are Christine Lampard and Adrian Chiles; comedian and actor Ardal O’Hanlon and Great British Bake Off winner, Nadiya Hussain; BAFTA winning actor Jason Watkins (W1A and Silent Witness); Countryfile’s Ellie Harrison, Sally Lindsay (Ordinary Lies and Still Open All Hours), and Formula One and MotoGP presenter, Suzi Perry.
Patrick Kielty said: “It’s always great to get home and to record in the studio where my TV career began all those years ago has been such good craic. We’ve had some brilliant guests and I can’t thank them enough for letting me have a root through their online lives.”
Susan Lovell, Head of TV Commissioning with BBC Northern Ireland, said: “We are delighted to welcome Patrick Kielty, who is undoubtedly one of our biggest successes, back to his comedy roots in Belfast for this exciting new chat show.”
The format was co-created by Ali Crockett, David Scott and Roughcut Television, the production company behind the BBC Three sitcoms People Just Do Nothing and Cuckoo.
