Who is on the next series of Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule.

ITV reveal guest line-up

ITV has confirmed some of the guests appearing in the upcoming third series of Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule.

As Chortle reported last month, the comedy panel show will be returning to screens next year.

Among those appearing in the new series are: Les Dennis, Bill Roache, Charlie Dimmock, Tom Courtenay, Amanda Barrie, Pam St Clement, Chelsee Healey, Stephanie Beacham, The Krankies and Patrick Mower.

The premise has been described as a 'reverse Room 101' with a celebrity panel supposedly deciding what should be placed into a box to prove the worth of the human race in case of alien invasion. 

Series 2 aired on Saturday nights between April and June, averaging 2.4 million viewers according to overnight figures.

Hill said: ‘I’m thrilled to be spending another seven weeks protecting the earth from alien invasion but can’t help feeling that this does leave us vulnerable for the other 45 weeks of the year.’

Saskia Schuster, ITV’s Comedy Controller added: ‘Harry’s quest to save planet earth has become a firm favourite with ITV viewers.  We’ve got some great celebrity guests lined up for the new series and as usual, anything can happen - and it often does.’

The show will be made by Nit Television, the joint venture between Harry Hill and A League of Their Own programme-makers CPL Productions.
