ITV orders a twist of Lemon

Saturday-night show for Keith

ITV has ordered a new high-profile Saturday night series from Keith Lemon.

In the six-part series Lemonade, Leigh Francis’s creation will offer a twist on the Jim’ll Fix It format by solving audience problems and helping dreams come true – aided by a different celebrity each week.

Dan Baldwin, managing director of programme makers Talkback said: ‘Keith Lemon’s Lemonaid will be a great opportunity for the British public to interact with Keith on a whole new level. We want to reflect the great “wish fulfillment” shows from yesteryear but add a very special twist of Lemon to ITV1’s Saturday nights. We're delighted with the commission.’

In a statement, Lemon said: ‘I'm very excited to be in t' living rooms of the lovely ITV1 viewers with me new telly show Lemonaid. Solving people's problems and making dreams come true making me look nice like Cheryl Cole like when she went out to 't troops. She's lovely in'it… she not as fit as Kelly Brook though!’

The 45-minute episodes will begin in ‘early spring’ and follow the success of Celebrity Juice, which has run for six series on ITV2. It also builds on Lemon’s ‘agony aunt’ role on ITV1’s daytime show This Morning.
