Katherine Ryan Brings The Noise

Comic to be a regular on new Sky 1 show

Katherine Ryan is to be a regular panellist on a new music and comedy show for Sky 1.

Bring the Noise will be chaired by Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson in his first role as host, with Nicole Scherzinger and Tinie Tempah as team captains.

The eight-part show will mix live musical performances and a panel show elements, with music trivia questions and set pieces such as spoof video parodies and mash-ups. The last round will involve the teams competing in a musical performance battle.

Adam MacDonald, director of Sky 1, called it a 'truly unique format' and 'the must-see family show of the autumn'.

Ryan said: 'I can't wait to unleash my forensic interest in music and pop culture on Sky 1's Bring The Noise. It's my favourite Public Enemy track.

'And, when I was 17, I sewed my own prom dress, modelled after an outfit Nicole wore on Eden's Crush. I've been following her career from the beginning and if you'd told me then that I'd be in a room with her now, I'd have thought she was visiting me in hospital. Also, TinieTempah is my favourite rapper and Ricky Wilson is my favourite Kaiser Chief.'

Ricky Wilson added: 'Nicole, Tinie and Katherine are all completely brilliant and ridiculous in equal measure. I'm no stranger to music based TV shows with a competitive element, but this is taking music TV to another level. Swing by the off licence, phone for a takeaway, and settle in with Bring the Noise.'

The series was created by production company Twenty Six 03, and will be produced by Chris Little – who has experience of other big shiny-floor panel shows including A League of Their Own and Saturday Night Takeaway.

Tickets for the studio recordings are available from ApplauseStore.
