Claudia Winkleman presents Do The Right Thing
Strictly host fronts pilot for Channel 4
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.
