8 x 45min new live episodes
Episode 1: Wednesday 31 July
The award-winning gang show ‘The Last Leg’ returns live to prime time Channel 4 with a joyful, off beat take on the week, that aims to celebrate all that is best from around the world. The new series of eight episodes will air weekly on Wednesday nights throughout August and September with the first episode airing on Wednesday 31st July .
One year on from its launch alongside the Paralympic Games, and following its second outing, earlier this year, host Adam Hills and co-hosts Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker return with their critically acclaimed third series - where once again Adam, Josh and Alex take a look at the weird and wonderful talking point stories of the week to enjoy and celebrate what makes this country so unique.
A live studio audience and celebrity guests will join in with Adam, Alex and Josh on ‘The Last Leg’ sofa, as the gang tackle the issues of the week. Guests from the last series included: Rafe Spall, Prof Brian Cox, Jamie Oliver, Jack Dee, Jonathan Ross, Jo Brand, Kevin Bridges and Idris Elba.
The show also sees the return of the all-encompassing question: Is It Ok? Viewers at home and the live studio audience will be encouraged to ask this question about anything from the week, without fear of judgement. Once again, our three hosts will attempt to step into the minefield of sometimes difficult and delicate areas and answer the questions with their own unique insight.
‘The Last Leg’ will also incorporate live studio challenges and VTs each week, including Alex Brooker continuing his quest to reach the Paralympics in Rio 2016 as a participant.
