Viewers to pitch their OWN TV ideas to Harry Hill in new Channel 4 show

Alan Carr will present 'The Remote Controller', a Dragon's Den for telly formats

Harry Hill and Alan Carr

Members of the public will get the chance to have their OWN shows made for TV in a new Channel 4 entertainment format, co-created by Harry Hill and hosted by Alan Carr.

'The Remote Controller' will feature a variety of contestants, all of whom are convinced they have the next big telly hit on their hands.

Similarly to Dragon's Den, Alan will help them pitch their programmes to a panel of famous faces, including Harry himself.

Any genre is welcome - from game shows and reality formats to sitcoms and period dramas.

However, the judges can only offer their opinions, as the studio audience will ultimately vote on whether or not to greenlight the plans.

The top two ideas chosen by the crowd will get the chance to be made for real.

Channel 4 has ordered a non-broadcast pilot of The Remote Controller, which will be produced by Harry's company, Nit Television.

If it proves a hit with bosses, a full series will likely be made.

The Remote Controller is one of THREE new shows that Alan is currently working on for C4.

The funnyman recently signed up to present a revival of The Price Is Right, which last aired on ITV in 2007.

He is also set to front new gameshow, 'I Don't Like Mondays' in which winning contestants will be rewarded with a year's salary - before resigning from their jobs on air.

Harry is also keeping busy, with Sky 1's Tea Time and ITV's Alien Fun Capsule both set to return for new series soon.
