What time is it on TV?

Michael McIntyre’s Big Show continues on Saturday 16th December at 9pm on BBC1.


What’s in store?

Coming back for a third series, Michael McIntyre’s Big Show features a bucket load of variety with musical performances, games and of course what he is known for – stand up comedy.

There are two popular segments shown each week: Celebrity Send to All sees McIntyre steal a celebrity’s phone to send an awkward text to all of their contacts, reading out their humorous replies at the end of the show, and Unexpected Star of the Show invites an unsuspecting member of the public to the filming venue where they find themselves thrust into the limelight and given the chance to perform their talents onstage.

Who’s on the show this week?

Irish singer and One Direction graduate Niall Horan performs on stage. Also delighting the masses tonight is Michael’s fellow funnyman Jason Manford, and actress, comedienne and accomplished prat-faller Miranda Hart risks offending her family and friends as she hands her phone over in Celebrity Send-to-All. Plus, an A&E doctor is tricked into believing the theatre is actually a grand hotel as the host stages another ambitious Unexpected Star stunt.

Did you know?

It was originally intended to be a one-off Christmas special but it proved so popular the BBC decided to turn it into a proper series.
