Mel Giedroyc has been announced as the host of a brand new show for Dave called Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable, a panel show in which three celebrities are invited to confess their sins. Mel will then decide which confessions are, you guessed it, unforgivable.
The comedian and presenter Mel Giedroyc said: “I’m thrilled that the wonderful people at Dave have asked me to host Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable. It would be strange if they hadn’t asked me because my name is in the title. Anyway…in the show I’ll be leading a competitive confessional where only the celebrity or comic who admits to the worst behaviour can win. I intend to lead from the front by dropping in a few of my own misdemeanours to get the ball rolling, and I only hope it’s as fun to watch as it is to host! Though I also hope that anyone I’ve wronged and doesn’t yet know it, doesn’t watch Dave.”
Commissioner Hilary Rosen said: “I’m delighted that Mel is fronting this deliciously wicked, and very funny new format. She is uniquely good at getting comedians and celebrities to reveal their darkest and most shameful secrets and we are looking forward to sharing them with the Dave audience.”
Ben Wicks from production company Expectation added: “We are elated that Dave have jumped at the chance to get comic legend Mel Giedroyc to perform a vital public service: deciding which of Britain’s funniest and most entertaining people are the biggest wrong uns. By starting each show with some of her own hilarious misdemeanours, she ensures guests fall over themselves to reveal ever wilder indiscretions. We’ve loved playing and watching it, and hope it will go on to be adored by the Dave audience and the police alike.”
