Bridget Christie to curate The Museum of Curiosity.

Comic joins John Lloyd's Radio 4 show

Bridget Christie has been named as  the next curator of Radio 4’s The Museum of Curiosity.

She will be the 14th person to co-host the show with QI creator John Lloyd, following in the footsteps of  the likes of Sarah Millican, Noel Fielding, Jo Brand, Romesh Ranganathan, Sally Phillips and Lee Mack.

Christie said: ‘I’ve wanted to curate a museum ever since I saw a waxwork of Prince William in the Louis Tussauds House of Wax in Great Yarmouth, and now here I am. 

‘I have to say though that there’s a fair bit of work to be done at the museum itself, in terms of access and security, and let’s not mention the toilet facilities.’

Lloyd added: ‘We’ve had some truly amazing curators over the years, but they don’t come smarter, funnier or nicer than Bridget.’

Produced by Victoria Lloyd and Anne Miller, The Museum of Curiosity invites guests to donate an exhibit of their choice to an infinite, imaginary museum. 

Previous guests have included astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Helen Sharman, poet Benjamin Zephaniah, hostage negotiator Sue Williams, shepherd Amanda Owen and neurosurgeon Henry Marsh.

The new six-part series will air from September 30. It will be recorded in the BBC Radio Theatre in Broadcasting House, Central London, next month with free audience tickets available from this Friday  here
