Emma Willis: Delivering Babies 2020
Filming for the third series of Emma Willis: Delivering Babies 2020 has already begun, following families preparing to give birth in the midst of the pandemic.
The series follows the fictionalised life of comedian couple Jon Richardson (8 Out of 10 Cats) and Lucy Beaumount, offering a look into the frustrations and foibles that come with their married life in Yorkshire.
The second series of Meet the Richardsons, written by Lucy Beaumont and Tim Reid (Car Share), will explore with increasing hilarity the conflict between Jon and Lucy’s private life and their career, as well as offering a window into how they’ve been coping during lockdown.
Written by Ben Richards and produced by World Productions, The Diplomat sees Laura Simmonds team up with her colleague and friend at the Barcelona Consul Alba Ortiz, to help protect British nationals who get themselves into trouble in the city.
Simmonds and Ortiz take on the roles of lawyer, counsellor and cop as they try to handle the stream of problems they face.
The 12-part series, produced by Whizz Kid Entertainment, features one famous face per episode in which they bring their favourite starter, main and dessert, plus the menu they would want for their last meal on earth.
Once Richman has tucked into their choices, he finds out why the dishes are so important to his guest, before going to find the best ingredients to transform their favourite dish into their ultimate last supper.
The special – produced by Firecracker Films – follows on from last years series, Emma Willis: Delivering Babies, and will show never-before-seen footage of last year’s births at Princess Alexandra Hospital.
Willis meets both the babies and their parents six months after the initial filming and discovers how life has changed for them since leaving the maternity ward.
Marcus Arthur may be a BBC veteran, but the winds of change blowing through UKTV these past nine months or so have been like no other in his lengthy BBC career.
Last June, he succeeded Darren Childs as the outfit’s CEO. His appointment followed the end of the joint venture with Discovery, which finally gave BBC Studios full control of UKTV and its seven-channel portfolio (its three lifestyle channels were acquired by Discovery as part of the separation) and the online hub, UKTV Play.
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.
