Sky 1 is dishing up a brand-new spoof cookery series starring BAFTA award-winning comedian Harry Hill.
Described as ‘one part chat-show and one part spoof cookery show’, the 10-part series sees Harry interview a selection of celebrity guests, while teaching them how to cook some of his very own, madcap recipes for a three-course meal.
The first episode of ‘Harry Hill’s Tea Time’ airs on Sunday (October 16) at 6pm. The guest is master baker and co-judge of BBC1’s ‘The Great British Bake Off’ Paul Hollywood, whose menu has a Greek theme.
According to the October 8 issue of the ‘Weekend’ section of ‘Daily Mail’, Paul is ‘charged with fashioning a doner kebab into an effigy of George Michael, while his ‘Greek student non-baking cake’ involves little more than the spooning of Nutella into a hat.
‘There’s also a sketch that involves Harry disappearing into Paul’s hypnotic blue eyes – and wandering around inside his brain dressed as a silver fox.’
The cookery is interspersed with old TV clips, slapstick and sketches. Other celebrity guests include Emilia Fox, Marin Kemp and Jason Donovan.
Harry told the newspaper: “The last thing I want to do is give people the idea that this is a proper cookery programme. I mean, yes, there’s cooking in it, but it’s subverted. Put it this way, if you made the recipes you might die. It’s caused a few issues about compliance.”
