Lenny Henry hosts new viral clips show

Lenny Henry is to front a BBC One series recycling all the best viral videos from the internet.

A full six-part series has been commissioned following the success of a pilot episode which aired at Christmas.

Independent production house Tiger Aspect, which is making the show, said it was ‘an exciting and innovative new format… cherry-picking the funniest and most entertaining internet clips.’

The new series, called LennyHenry.TV, will air in the autumn.

Tiger Aspect’s Clive Tulloh told TV industry magazine Broadcast: ‘In-boxes regularly fill with emails containing clips from entertainment sites such as YouTube and Bebo, but very few of us have the time to sit through them.

‘ foes that for you and provides a half-hour burst of the funniest clips in a digestable and entertaining format.’

Each week Henry will be joined by a celebrity guest, who will introduce their own clips.
