What Tyler ?

BBC TV entertainment commissioning has been handed to Alan Tyler, nee Taylor, while his boss, Mark Linsey looks after the whole divisional shebang.

Alan spent 9 years at St Andrew's University, acquiring a degree in experimental pathology, and a PhD for leukaemia research. He wrote gags and did stand-up in his spare time.

He presented his own quiz show Beat The Streets on BBC2 Scotland, and fronted live doco Maternity Hospital alongside Sue Cook and Anna Ryder Richardson.

He's enthusiastic about his latest commission, Can't Touch This, filling the huge hole in everyone's lives left by the end of Total Wipeout. It's presented by Zoe Ball and Ashley Banjo, with voice overs from Sue Perkins. “We are really excited to be bringing the stellar combination of Zoe, Ashley and Sue to audiences on BBC One. Their natural enthusiasm, passion and wit are completely infectious, willing our intrepid contestants on as they hurtle over every obstacle, across every pool and into every wall.”

I know which button I'll be touching.
