Fresh from the news that Emma Willis will host the new series of The Circle, it has also been announced today that she'll host a new E4 series called Pants on Fire.
The brand-new entertainment series will see new and emerging faces from the world of comedy go head-to-head in an extreme bluffing show to try to impress a celebrity jury.
In each show, three teams of fearless comics will plot their own crazy and outrageous challenges. They could come up with anything: From swimming with sharks to winning a pro-wrestling battle royale.
Then in front of a studio audience and a celebrity jury, the three teams will present evidence to help prove that they have completed their audacious stunts. The celeb panel will interrogate the teams to figure out if they are telling the truth or telling fibs. Will the teams have authentically pulled off these improbable stunts, or have they just been pulling a fast one?
The series is a Fulwell 73 production and E4's Controller Karl Warner says “Pants on Fire is an extreme bluffing show and the first of a new comedy-entertainment push for E4. We’re lucky to have Emma hosting and it’s a great example of how we plan to combine well known Talent with up and coming stars.”
Whilst Commissioning Editor for Entertainment, Steven Handley, added “Pants on Fire promises to be the most provocative bluffing game ever on British TV. Not only has it got gripping play along, but we can break some brilliant new faces – hopefully not literally! Ringmaster to it all will be the amazing Emma Willis, who I can’t wait to see take control of the madness! Let the games begin!”
Pants on Fire will air later this year on E4
