Woodworking With Lee Mack

Yes, it could become a real TV show

comedyIt sounds like one of Alan Partridge's more desperate pitches. But Woodworking With Lee Mack could be coming to television.

The comic is developing a talent contest pilot to find Britain's best woodworker for the History Channel.

With the working title The Chop, Mack will present with Rick Edwards, who previously fronted the metalworking contest Forged In Britain for the channel.

Mack, who heats his home with a wood-burning stove, showed his appreciation for a well-crafted shepherd's hut when he visited the Chelsea Flower Show last year with his Would I Lie To You? co-star Rob Brydon.


A highlight to have @brydon_rob and Lee Mack visit us yesterday! Very nice chaps😊
