Lee Mack to host Sky panel show

Duck Quacks Don’t Echo picked up for series

Lee Mack is to host a new Sky 1 panel show about odd facts, called Duck Quacks Don’t Echo.

The broadcaster has ordered 14 hour-long episodes of the panel show, following a successful pilot recorded last year.

Each show will see three celebrity panelists offering up an fact they have picked up, which will then be put to the test. A Sky spokesman said: ‘Whether it involves gluing themselves to a ceiling or participants receiving electric shocks, elaborate and hilarious methods will be employed to establish a winner.’

Mack said: ‘I'm really, really excited at the prospect of finally putting to the test such important, profound and meaningful debates as “Do cows that have names really provide more milk?’

Sky’s head of entertainment Philip Edgar-Jones added: ‘Lee Mack is a very funny man and we loved the pilot for this so much – with its smart blend of comedy and mad facts – that we had to buy the series.’

The show, made by Magnum Media, will start filming soon for broadcast later this year.
