Paddy McGuinness to host new Channel 4 comedy show


Paddy McGuinness is set to host a brand new comedy show ‘Paddy's TV Guide' - which delves into the world of bizarre television.

Offering a guide to life through TV, each week, Paddy focuses on a different topic using crazy TV clips to explore everything from romance to family and Great Britain. Inviting the audience into his glamorous Bolton pad, Paddy will treat them to the good, the bad and the ugly from the world of television that's he's recorded onto his Paddy Player.

In his quest to unearth the funniest and most outrageous clips, Paddy has left no stone unturned - searching everywhere from mainstream terrestrial broadcasters to the darkest recesses of satellite and cable. Musical cop dramas? Fish tank documentaries? Anything goes. Paddy has sifted through it all to find those elusive nuggets of TV gold and offer up his own hilarious thoughts and unique commentary on these unseen gems.

Paddy says: "I can't wait to start on Paddy's TV Guide. It incorporates three of my favourite things. Laughing, sitting down and watching telly."

Tom Beck, Commissioning Editor, Channel 4 Entertainment, adds: "I'm delighted that Paddy has agreed to front this new comedy show for Channel 4. The combination of Paddy's brilliant eye for detail and TV's most peculiar shows is going to bring some hilarious offerings."
