Eliminated Show Me The Funny comic Ellie Taylor has tipped Patrick Monahan to win tonight's live final, filmed at the Hammersmith Apollo. Pat will be battling it out with Dan Mitchell and Tiffany Stevenson for a £100,000 cash prize, tour DVD and headliningg tour in the last show of the series.
Asked which of the three finalists had the potential to win over the public, Ellie told TellyMix: "I think they've all got a good shot at it, I think they've all come across well, which is half the battle in a show like show me the funny with the reality aspect."
But despite the diplomatic start to her answer, Ellie found there was one of the remaining trio of comics who stood out to her.
"I think Pat might win it... he's so charming, I love him... I genuinely got on all of them... but Pat just tickles me... oh this sounds really dodgy! Pat just tickles me in a really special way," she explained.
Ellie continued: "He's the same on and off and stage, he really is a lovable idiot and I think he's a extremely talented guy."
The former model turned stand up added: "I think Pat might win!"
Speaking to us about her own gig on Monday's show, Ellie said: "It went really well... I don't know if the edit necessarily showed it as well it went in my head... but I felt like I left on a high."
The Show Me The Funny final airs at 9PM on ITV1 tonight.
