Sky 1 serves up brand-new Harry Hill entertainment cooking show

Comedian Harry Hill is joining Sky 1 as the channel dishes up a brand-new spoof cookery entertainment series, ‘Harry Hill’s Tea-Time’.

In a two-series deal, ‘Harry Hill’s Tea-Time’ will first air on Sky 1 in the autumn, with a second series following in 2017.

The project is being billed as ‘a fun-filled concoction of one-part chat show and one-part spoof cookery show, sprinkled with the inimitable Harry Hill, as he casts his comedy eye over the world of cooking and cookery TV programmes’.

Celia Taylor, head of non-scripted commissioning at Sky, said: “On what other show could you learn how to make ‘chicken à la Tom Jones’? ‘Harry Hill’s Tea-Time’ is a brilliant addition to our slate of non-scripted programming.”

The eight-part series will see a celebrity guest thrown each week into Harry’s kitchen, joining him and his cast of comedy characters, as they take part in ‘a smorgasbord of cooking-related chaos’.

Harry will interview the guests while teaching them how to make ridiculous recipes such as ‘mozzarella snowmen’ and ‘sponge-finger prison’. He will garnish the chat with TV show clips from shows that his guests have appeared in, and comical observations taken from the cookery TV genre.

Sky said: ‘The little cooking that does get done is interspersed with all the usual comedy time-outs, bonkers games and musical interludes that the public have come to love from a Harry Hill show.’
