Prepare for more uproarious laughter, A-list celebrities, and unexpected surprises as Michael McIntyre's Big Show makes a triumphant return to BBC One and iPlayer.
Following its highly successful run earlier this year, which drew an average of 6.3 million viewers per episode, the hit Saturday night show is set to grace our screens once again in 2024. Produced by Hungry McBear Media and filmed in front of a live audience at the illustrious Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, this entertainment extravaganza promises to be an unforgettable experience, brimming with superstar guests, sensational musical performances, and a few extra twists.
Celebrities should prepare to feel a tinge of nervousness as fan-favourite segments like Send to All and The Midnight Gameshow will be making their triumphant return. Last season, stars such as Rylan Clarke, Alison Hammond, Jermaine Jenas, and Jonathan Ross willingly handed over control of their phones to Michael, who hilariously scrolled through their personal messages and contacts. Who will be brave enough to face Michael's scrutiny this time?
And if celebrities think they can catch some shut-eye, they better think again, as Michael plans to wake up even more famous faces in the middle of the night to participate in the side-splitting Midnight Gameshow. Who can forget the unforgettable moments when Peter Crouch was startled from his sleep while on vacation in Portugal or when Rob Rinder found Sooty and Sweep waiting at the end of his bed?
But the surprises don't stop there. Audiences can expect more astonishing moments, including jaw-dropping performances from the Unexpected Star of the Show, who will undoubtedly leave viewers in awe.
Earlier this year, the sixth series of Michael McIntyre's Big Show garnered over 90 million video views across the BBC's social media platforms. Memorable segments such as Lewis Capaldi's Send to All and Peter Crouch's Midnight Gameshow became viral sensations, captivating audiences worldwide.
Kalpna Patel-Knight, Head of Entertainment at the BBC, has commissioned the return of Michael McIntyre's Big Show. The show's Executive Producers from Hungry McBear Media are Dan Baldwin and Saul Fearnley, with Clodagh O'Donoghue serving as the Commissioning Editor for the BBC.
Stay tuned for further announcements regarding the transmission details of Michael McIntyre's Big Show, as the hilarious and star-studded series prepares to captivate audiences once again.
Michael McIntyre says "There isn't a day that goes by without someone telling me how much they love this show, although strangely nobody seems to know what it's called. It's either; 'The one where you take people's phones', 'The one where you wake people up in the night', 'The one where the wall falls down' or 'The Big Night in'. Well, I'm thrilled to announce that all four of those shows are set to return for a seventh series!"
