Celebrity Call Centre to open its phone lines for new Channel 4 show


Celebrities will provide help and advice to viewers in a brand new Channel 4 show.

Channel 4 is set to open the phone lines at a call centre like no other. The Celebrity Call Centre is staffed entirely by celebrities, it’s a helpline for the nation, where a team of all-star agony aunts will come together in aid of Stand Up to Cancer to advise the great British public on dilemmas, large and small.

The line up of celebs on the phones include Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh, Made in Chelsea’s Georgia “Toff” Toffolo, comedians Mo Gilligan, and Joel Dommett, TV’s Queen of Clean Kim Woodburn and Pineapple Dance Studios’ Louie Spence.

Joining them are Countdown maths whizz Rachel Riley and Cuckoo actor Tyger Drew-Honey.

They will be at the helm of the Celebrity Call Centre, never knowing who’ll be at the other end of the phone or what problem they’ll be faced with.

The celebs will offering advice on everything from how to get through a break up, to extra-marital affairs, and the perils of online dating. In the process they’ll be opening up about their own life experiences and the challenges and heartache they’ve faced.

Channel 4 Formats Commissioning Editor Lee McMurray said: “As well as serving up a fascinating, funny and often moving snap shot of the modern-day dilemmas that trouble the nation, the beauty of the format is that it also encourages the celebrity agony aunts to open up, talking to members of the public in a way they never have before, and providing Channel 4 viewers with surprising revelations and touching insights into their real lives and personalities.”

Executive Producer Steven D Wright added: “We’re delighted to be producing Celebrity Call Centre as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up to Cancer season this year. As well as contributing to a worthy cause, the format entertainingly gets under the skin of what’s vexing Britain, and cleverly brings some of our favourite stars down from their pedestals.

“Expect shocks, surprises and revelations as the celebrities open up to tackle the Great British public’s problems and predicaments.”

Celebrity Call Centre airs tonight, October 22, 10PM on Channel 4.
