Bobby Mair to host a spooky ITV2 reality show

'Facilitating murder is the job I was born to do'

Bobby Mair is to present a murder-mystery reality TV show in the run-up to Halloween.

Killer Camp will be stripped across five nights on ITV2, with 11 unsuspecting contributors dropped into a 1980s-inspired summer camp.

But there is a murderer among them and over the hour-long episodes, contestants must try to earn cash and figure out who the killer is, while avoiding being despatched in a comically extreme way.

Mair said: ‘Being a presenter, camp counsellor and facilitator of murder is the job I was born to do! I really hope ITV2 viewers have as much fun watching this show as much as I had getting to make it.’

Series editor James Donkin added: ‘Killer Camp has betrayal, romance and horror throwback nostalgia at its core, all wrapped up with a glorious 1980s bow. 

‘We hope the boxset-bingeing twists, alongside the overarching whodunit narrative will hook viewers in and keep them locked, until the big reveal on Halloween night.’

Here’s a trailer:

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
