David Walliams hosts Blankety Blank Xmas special, featuring Louis Walsh!


Blankety Blank is back on TV tonight for a one-off celebrity special.

The festive episode, hosted by David Walliams airs tonight (Christmas Eve) at 6:30PM on ITV.

Blankety Blank has previously been hosted by series regulars Terry Wogan, Les Dawson and Lily Savage.

The aim of the game is for two contestants to compete head to head to match the answers of the celebrity panellists on fill in the blank statements. The winner goes through to the much-loved Supermatch game.

The six confirmed celebrity panellists taking part in the Christmas special tonight are presenter and broadcaster Anne Robinson, X Factor judge Louis Walsh and comedian Joe Lycett.

They're joined by Birds of a Feather star Lesley Joseph, Coronation Street actress Brooke Vincent and the much-loved Chuckle Brothers.

Louis Walsh said: “I am really excited to be taking part in Blankety Blank after 14 years off air. The worst case scenario is that contestants leave with just a Blankety Blank cheque book and pen and let’s be honest who wouldn’t want one of those!”

Anne Robinson commented: "I'm thrilled to be doing the show again and am indebted to the Chuckle Brothers for explaining how it works. I never got the hang of it last time.‎"

Lesley Joseph added: “I was delighted to be asked to take part in the Blankety Blank Christmas Special as it’s an iconic TV programme that I have watched many times over the years.

I am thrilled to be working with David Walliams and am very excited to be part of ITV’s Christmas line up.”

Blankety Blank airs Saturday 24th December, 6.30pm, ITV
