Another C4 show for Morgana

VIP features celebrity impressions

Morgana Robinson is to star in another Channel 4 comedy show, despite attracting only modest ratings for her first outing.

She will again be working with impressionist Terry Mynott for the new show, called VIP, which is due to air later this year.

The show is being made by her agent John Noel, through his production company Running Bare Pictures.

The first episode features a parody of ITV1’s Daybreak, which has been seen as a dig at Christine Bleakley, one of Noel’s former clients who infuriated him when she dumped him for rival agents Avalon.

Robinson was a relative unknown when she landed her own five-part Channel 4 series last year, as a double-bill with Frankie Boyle’s Tramadol Nights. The first episode attracted 733,000 viewers, the second 654,000, however C4's head of comedy Shane Allen called her a 'fresh performer with a huge amount of potential'.

She is also due to play Carol Caplin alongside Jennifer Saunders, Rik Mayall, Robbie Coltrane, Harry Enfield and Stephen Mangan in new Comic Strip Presents film The Hunt for Tony Blair, due to be broadcast on Channel 4 in late 2011.

Here is the Daybreak parody from the first VIP episode:
