David Walliams To Host One Off Blankety Blank Christmas Special
David Walliams is to front a revival of quiz show Blankety Blank in a one-off Christmas special of the TV quiz show – the first full episode since 2002.
It was formerly hosted by Sir Terry Wogan, Les Dawson and Lily Savage.
Walliams tweeted a photograph of former host Sir Terry, saying he had “very big shoes to fill”.
The panel show, to be shown on ITV, will see six celebrities help two contestants win prizes by filling in blanked-out words in a phrase.
The popular quiz show has been revived twice for special occasions: Sir Terry Wogan hosted a Children In Need special whilst Paul O’Grady (who had previously hosted as his alter ego Lily Savage) hosted as himself for Comic Relief, on that occasion David Walliams was a panellist.
