Mark Silcox joins Joe Lycett's pilot a tech expert on his consumer affairs show

Deadpan stand-up Mark Silcox has joined the cast of the comedy consumer show Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back.

Channel 4 last night confirmed the pilot, which Chortle first reported last month, and announced that Silcox would be joining he team as a ‘tech expert’.

Katie Morley, the Daily Telegraph’s consumer experts is also on the show, along with ‘secret weapon Ninette’ who will be  testing a range of advertising claims.


Lycett said: ‘Having spent most of my life sending arsey emails to companies and local councils it is a great treat to now have an amazing crack team to escalate my consumer rights fight and needlessly waste corporate time.

‘If you’ve been scammed, messed about by a company, or just want to contest a parking fine, then worry not: I’ve got your back.’

 Channel 4 commissioning editor Sarah Lazenby added: ‘Joe Lycett is a rare talent, who manages to publicly lampoon everyone from parking wardens to Donald Trump with wit, warmth and utter charm. 

‘His infamous tirades against petty injustices are totally on point and we’re delighted to be piloting his uniquely authored consumer show for Channel 4.’

The show is being made by Rumpus Media, whose credits include Romesh Ranganathan’s Asian Provocateur, Joel and Nish Versus The World, and Henning Wehn’s An Immigrant’s Guide To Britain, which also featured Silcox.
