The show will see the comedian spare no expense in putting together the dream wedding for one lucky same-sex couple. The event will mark not just the union of Adam and Dan, but also 10 years of gay marriage being legal in England and Wales.

Along the way, Allen will hear from longstanding activist Peter Tatchell and broadcaster and Women’s Equality Party co-founder Sandi Toksvig (QI). Lynn Sutcliffe and Sarah Hews, who made headlines in 1992 for presenting themselves at Westminster Registry Office to be married – both in wedding dresses – will also make an appearance.

Sandi Toksvig to return with a second series of Extraordinary Escapes

Toksvig will once again travel across the country on more extraordinary adventures with some of the nation’s funniest and interesting women.

The six-part series and Christmas special will show viewers some of the most beautiful, wildest and one-of-a-kind stays that suit every budget, with plenty of laughs along the way. 

To kick off the series, Toksvig will explore Devon with stand-up comedian and author Sarah Millican.

The four-part series will see a group of celebrities pitted against each other and challenged to learn as much as possible about a new topic they know nothing about.

Their memory of this new topic will then be tested by Toksvig at Memory HQ, with experts offering the celebrities memory tips and tricks to help change the way they think and improve their memory.

Across the four episodes, the celebrities will be whittled down to just one, who will be crowned Memory Champion.

Bake Off host steps down

After three years and 51 showstoppers, Toksvig has decide to step down from The Great British Bake Off to spend more time on different projects, such as her upcoming Channel 4 series The Write Offs.

Toksvig described working on the show with Noel Fielding, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood as “one of the greatest pleasures of my life”, describing her friendship with them as one that will “continue beyond the confines of television.”
