More details have emerged of Channel 4’s new sketch show, Spoons.
The broadcaster announced in April that it was to launch the new comedy, at the time provisionally titled The Zeppotron Sketch Show, will all the skits based around the relationships of twenty- and thirty-somethings.
The cast of the show can now be revealed, including former Top of the Pops and The Games star Josie D’Arby, pictured.
Comedians Rob Rouse, from The Friday Night Project, and Kerry Godliman are also involved, as is Simon Farnaby, a former member of the Ealing Live! sketch team who had an acclaimed show at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe.
The cast is completed by actors Rosie Cavaliero and Tom Goodman Hill.
Characters in the show – to be recorded next month – include the man who as a special treat says ‘I'll cook dinner tonight’ on the day his wife has given birth, to Blind Date man, who doesn't see anything wrong in taking a girl he's never met before to a dog fight.
The four-man writing team includes Charlie Brooker, who co-wrote Nathan Barley with Chris Morris, as well as Ben Caudell, Peter Holmes and Neil Webster.
The six half-hour shows are being made by Zeppotron, a division of Big Brother producer Endemol.
