Davina gets roasted

In a C4 comedy special

Channel 4’s Comedy Roast is to return for a one-off targeting Davina McCall.

Again hosted by Jimmy Carr, the comics levelling insults at the Big Brother host will include Rich Hall, Debra Stephenson, Patrick Kielty, Ed Byrne and Jack Whitehall. There will also be appearances by Chris Moyles, Dermot O’Leary, Julian Clary and Fearne Cotton

McCall said: ‘I’m honoured/terrified at the thought of being roasted.’

The show will air on Friday October 15, just two nights after it is recorded in London, with Channel 4's head of entertainment Justin Gorman saying: ‘It will be a night to remember.’

The broadcaster imported the North American tradition this summer, with Bruce Forsyth, Sharon Osbourne and Chris Tarrant the butt of the comedians’ gags.
