Up Late With Rylan: All you need to know about Channel 5's new chat show

Up Late With Rylan

Up Late With Rylan is the new chat show from Channel 5, taking on ITV, Channel 4 and BBC One.

Hosted by Rylan Clark, the series will air four nights a week on Channel 5 at 11PM, Monday to Thursday.

"It's a late night entertainment show which is a hybrid of all sorts of different influences," says Rylan, "It's a lively mix of chat, entertainment and games; it's been inspired by all of my favourite parts of all of my favourite shows."

Rylan described the show as a mix between the likes of Chatty Man and Graham Norton and Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and Celebrity Juice.

"It's been a long time coming, we've been talking about it for a while. But I didn't want to run before I could walk. Working at Big Brother and This Morning has been the best training, and now I feel really pepped up and it's the right time," he continued.

Rylan went on to say he feels the show will fill a spot in the market: "At that time of night, all we've got in the UK is just repeats or news based shows, no entertainment.

"I'm always searching for something to watch at that time of night. So this is going to be a late night destination. Just like This Morning is a staple of your morning, this is going to be a staple of your late night. It's something that's not been done for about 20 years."

And Rylan's DREAM guest for the series?

He raves: "All five Spice Girls. It's my one wish in life, to get them all in one room together. Someone's got to do something, surely? I would just die if I pulled it off. I would settle for one Spice Girl, though."

Up Late With Rylan, Monday to Thursday at 11pm from 9th May on Channel 5
