Claudia Winkleman presents Do The Right Thing
Claudia Winkleman was revealed as host of the Do The Right Thing television pilot last night.
The Strictly Come Dancing presenter was joined by creator Danielle Ward as a sidekick on the non-broadcast Channel 4 recording
Cabourn-Smith runs the @MenToWomen twitter account tracking the ratio of men to women on television programmes and films, and the pilot defied the conventional male bias of panel show guests.
Ward tweeted: 'If I achieve nothing else in my career, my panel show pilot had 5 women on it. Fuck yeah.'
The Do The Right Thing format asks the teams what they would do in real-life situations, from survival tips such as being attacked by wolves to taking a bullet, through to agony aunt-style relationship advice and trying to guess how an expert such as a butler or police officer would handle a dilemma in their job.
When Taskmaster and Go 8 Bit have moved from live shows to the Dave TV channel, they drafted in Greg Davies and Dara O Briain as hosts, but kept respective originators Alex Horne and Steve McNeil and Sam Pamphilon on as a sidekick and team captains.
The pilot was filmed in front of a live audience at the Hospital Club in London.
