Reasons to be Cheerful with Matt Lucas

Having already cheered up millions with his viral Thank You Baked Potato video in support of Feed NHS, Matt Lucas is going to front this new comedy entertainment show written by Harry Hill.

The series will see the comedic minds of Lucas and Harry Hill combine to bring viewers brand new sketches, upbeat homemade skits and an opportunity to showcase members of the public and their pets alongside celebrities, all from their own homes.

“I was just taken aback that I had the opportunity to get my own [show],” he says of his Friday night chat show.

He made a name for himself last year as the co-host of The Big Narstie Show alongside the grime star. The pair won an RTS Programme Award and a Bafta nod for their entertainment performance.
