The Nightly Show: Watch David Walliams take on Donald Trump

David Walliams takes on Donald Trump in tonight's first episode of The Nightly Show on ITV.

In a skit from this evening's premiere episode, David is seen 'quizzing' the new US President about his tan and friendship with Nigel Farage.

The Nightly Show is a new 30-minute programme which airs week nights in the 10pm slot on ITV and will feature a different big name host each week.

David Walliams will be in the hot seat for the launch week with the show described as a mash up of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and America's The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Britain's Got Talent judge David, who recently fronted a revived Blankety Blank for ITV at Christmas, said: "I am thrilled to be the first host for this brand new show for ITV."


The famous faces hosting the show during the eight week run will oversee a high tempo mixture of topical monologue, studio games, celebrity guests, experts and VT’s.

As well his 'chat' with Donald Trimp, David will be seen tonight exclusively 'revealing' what went on at the Oscars last night, as La La Land was incorrectly named Best Picture instead of Moonlight.

More guest hosts for the run so far include Gordon Ramsay, John Bishop and Bradley Walsh. Each will take charge of the show for a week and it's expected the first series will run for up to eight weeks.

Peter Davey, ITV’s Head Of Comedy Entertainment said: “We're really excited about launching this bold new show, and delighted that David will kick off what will be an eight week entertainment treat for viewers.”

The Nightly Show with David Walliams will begin on Monday, February 27 on ITV at 10PM.

The show will then continue week nights on ITV with a new host starting each Monday.
