UKTV’s award-winning entertainment channel Dave, has commissioned new panel show, Unforgivable, hosted by Mel Giedroyc.
According to Ben Wicks, executive producer at Expectation, Geidroyc will be performing “a vital public service: deciding which of Britain’s funniest and most entertaining people are the biggest wrong uns.”
Each week Geidroyc will invite three celebrity sinners to a group confessional, to find out who’s committed the most ‘unforgivable’ sins. In other words, the worst behaviour wins.
Leading the proceedings, Geidroyc will share some of her own shameful secrets to ensure her guests don’t hold back when it comes to sharing theirs.
Commenting on the show and its place in Dave’s comedic canon, channel director, Luke Hales, added: “We (Dave) are committed to becoming the home of the best comic talent in the UK and this marks another brilliant and exciting step in that direction.
“We love Mel G, we know how funny, warm and brilliant she is from working with her on Taskmaster and knew we wanted to work with her more.”
Giedroyc is no stranger to UK screens, appearing in and co-hosting many of the country’s most beloved series and panel shows, including The Great British Bake Off.
“I only hope it's as fun to watch as it is to host!”, said Mel. “Though I also hope that anyone I've wronged and doesn't yet know it, doesn't watch Dave.”
Unforgivable will air on Dave later this year.
