I recently had a chat with Keith Lemon about the return of Through The Keyhole as well as all the many other projects he's got on the go at the moment.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 14 years, you'll be all too familiar with Keith Lemon, the alter-ego of comedian Leigh Francis (Bo Selecta). Whether it's Celebrity Juice or Lemon La Vida Loca, Keith has been entertaining audiences on ITV2 for a long time now and has a new sketch show, aptly titled The Keith Lemon Sketch Show launching on the channel next year.
Last year Keith moved over to the main channel ITV to bring back Through The Keyhole. To bring back a show that was so widely loved was always going to be a gamble, but luckily it was one that paid off. Helped by a great lead-in audience from The X Factor, the show was loved by audiences young and old with many praising the irreverent host's presenting skills and overall show format. Also, we're all a little bit nosey aren't we? Why would you turn down the chance to have a snoop around a celebs house?
Last week when I was Edinburgh for the International Television Festival I was lucky enough to witness Through The Keyhole live in front of an audience for a special TV controllers stage version and having seen the first few episode of the new series I cannot recommend it enough.
