Get your leg warmers out of the dressing up box and slot Pac Man back into your sega mega-drive as on Friday 20 September, Channel 4 heads back to the 80s for a night of nostalgic fun.
The evening will host a night of classic shows, all given a nostalgic twist and in between programmes, viewers will be treated to a host of comedy sketches featuring some interesting celebrities. Kicking things off is the return of Fifteen to One, back on screens after ten years. With Adam Hills at the helm, we’ll see fifteen celebrities go head to head as they battle it out to win the notoriously tough quiz show. There’ll then be an 80s makeover of Cats Does Countdown and Alan Carr will welcome some 80’s sparkle into the studio in a special Chatty Man. The programming will end with a documentary throwback to 80s music show Rewind The Tube, which will look at the programme’s rise and fall, the social context that it existed in and also feature a host of stars looking back at their contributions.
The 80s theme will follow on Saturday with a classic 80s film and on Sunday, two celebrity teams will have their memories challenged in the ‘Big Fat Quiz of the 80s’.
