You are cordially invited to Mark-Francis' Big Night Out
Made in Chelsea’s Mark-Francis Vandelli is slipping off his Gucci loafers and slipping into the UK’s vibrant party scene; from Death Metal in Bolton, to Bashment in Brixton, Mark-Francis embarks on an eye-opening and ear-splitting adventure. In All 4’s new series, Mark-Francis’ Big Night Out, the discerning socialite discovers just how wild nightlife can be outside the sophisticated soirees of SW3. The 6 x 10’ series will be available on All 4 from 1st December.
Swapping balls and banquets for kebabs and pints, the series follows Mark-Francis as he “has it” like he’s never had it before, with some of the UK’s most hardcore party-goers.
How will Mark-Francis handle a mosh-pit? Will he perfect the dutty wine? Does he have the stamina to survive freshers week in Liverpool and will he let a kebab pass his lips as he goes ‘out-out’ for ladies night in Stevenage?
The series is produced by Monkey and commissioned by Channel 4’s Thom Gulseven, All 4 Commissioning Editor and All 4 Editor, Lizzy Keene. The series is executive produced by Monkey’s Ros Coward, Kelly Lynn and David Granger.
Kelly Lynn, Executive Producer at Monkey comments: “It is safe to say Mark Francis has never been more out of his comfort zone in this hilarious 6-part series. I think viewers will be surprised to see how much he thrives in certain situations… and at some points he even looks like he’s having fun. With a number of unlikely new friends by his side and no Victoria Baker Harber in sight, this really is an insight into the mysterious Mark Francis.”
Thom Gulseven, Commissioning Editor, adds “Nobody knows proper etiquette like Mark Francis – so when it comes to learning the dos and don’ts of a Death Metal mosh pit, there’s no better guide. Mark is ever popular with our viewers online, and it’s a real joy to see him having such a laugh with so many brilliant, up-for-it night owls, and a real sign that there’s plenty of life left in the UK’s nightlife.”
