New film-based panel show for Radio 4

Lee Mack and John Thomson as team captains

Lee Mack and John Thomson are to be team captains in a new BBC quiz show.

Gaby’s Talking Pictures will be hosted by Gabin Roslin and is billed as ‘a fun, funny and illuminating celebration of cinema’.

The show, for Radio 4, will also reunite impressionists Alistair McGowan and Ronni Ancona to contribute their vocal talents.

An initial edition of the show is being recorded in front of a studio audience next month and will feature Sarah Hadland and Stephen Tomkinson as guests.

Mack has just stood down as a team captain on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, though will continue on the Countdown spin-off.
