Whitehouse and Enfield reunite

For a 'home video' Match Of The Day

Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse are the latest comedy stars to be working on a TV clip show.

The pair are piloting a series in which they will offer Match Of The Day-style commentary over home sporting footage found on the internet.

Trade magazine Broadcast reports that the pair will front The Incredible Talent Show in characters such as Gary Clean and Alan Handsome.

It is being tested out for a Saturday teatime on BBC One, and could be seen as the corporation’s answer to You’ve Been Framed.

The show is being made by Burning Bright Productions, which is co-owned by top comedy agent Peter Bennett-Jones

Enfiled and Whitehouse’s last show for the BBC, Ruddy Hell! It’s Harry and Paul, was moved from BBC One to BBC Two after two series, before being dropped early last year.

Paddy McGuinness is piloting a clip show for Channel 4, while David Walliams and Robert Webb have also recently hosted clip shows.
