Warwick Davis to front panel show

Recording a pilot this month

Warwick Davis could be fronting his own BBC panel show.

The star of Ricky Gervais’s new sitcom Life’s Too Short is to front a pilot episode of the new quiz format, Ace Of Clubs, to be recorded later this month.

The idea will feature enthusiastic members of a club or society who will have to prove themselves worthy of the title Ace Of Clubs.

The pilot will be recorded at MediaCityUK in Salford on Tuesday November 29. To be in the audience see our free tickets page.
