David Walliams set for new panel show

With Frank Skinner and Greg Davies

David Walliams is being lined up to host a new primetime panel show on BBC One, with Frank Skinner and Greg Davies as team captains.

The premise of I Love My Country is that celebrity teams must compete to show who knows Britain best – with the studio audience divided into competing teams too.

The trio did a run-through on Tuesday night, with guests pulled from reality TV shows: Christine Hamilton from I’m A Celebrity; Brian Belo from Big Brother; Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes from Pop Idol; and Chico from X-Factor.

After the show, Walliams tweeted: ‘Today I took part in a run-through for a new BBC entertainment show. Frank Skinner was one of the team captains and my God he's a funny man.’

A full pilot is being recorded on July 23, and it is thought the series might launch by late summer.
