Jack Dee, Andrew Maxwell, Tamara Ecclestone and Kate Garraway will all be joining David Walliams' new Friday night quiz show 'Wall of Fame' as regularly panellists, it has been revealed. Each week they'll be joined by two guests to complete their teams of three in the weekly panel show.
The regular panellists and their guests will battle it out each week to see who will triumph in a contest to find out which team has their finger on the pulse of pop culture and current affairs in a series of riotous rounds centred around a wall of the 25 most talked about faces of that week.
Kate Garraway and Andrew Maxwell pair up on one team. Kate, no stranger to discussing the latest celebrity gossip having interviewed some of the biggest names in showbusiness, commented: "In my day job I spend my life interviewing all the people who have made the headlines so I keep a keen eye on the news. David is going to be a great host and I am looking forward to joining my other panellists to talk about all the faces who have made the stories that week."
Fast paced, internationally renowned Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell will be bringing his quick witted A game to dissect each week's news headlines, he said: “As a news bug myself, I am really looking forward to sitting on a panel week in and week out with British comedy giants David and Jack and discussing all the week’s news and gossip. It’s a really exciting show and I’m delighted to be part of it”
The opposing team will be made up of model and television presenter Tamara Ecclestone and the nation’s favourite dead-pan comic Jack Dee. More used to being written about, in Wall of Fame Tamara and Jack will be turning the tables and commenting on who else has joined them in being the talk of the town that week.
Tamara remarked: "I'm so thrilled to have been asked to be a regular panellist on Wall of Fame. I'm a huge fan of David Walliams and working with him on the show is so exciting. Everyone needs to laugh so tune in every Friday!"
Jack Dee said: “I shall be bringing my usual blend of warmth and fun to the show and I can scotch the rumour here and now that I am David Walliams’ new bitch. I think Wall of Fame will be must see television and for once in my life for the right reasons.”
The first guests to join them are N-Dubz singer Tulisa, in her first TV appearance since her appointment to The X Factor judging panel, and fresh from a nationwide tour highly acclaimed stand-up comedian Micky Flanagan.
