Impresario at work

Ah,  the consummate funnybone of C4's Jay Hunt. According to the Mirror, the channel is pairing Noel Edmonds and Alan Carr for a new Saturday night show.

An 'insider' tells Nigel Pauley, "It was Jay who came up with the idea of teaming Noel and Alan. She thinks it will make brilliant viewing.”

Carr's late night Chatty Man began in 2009, and has been fairly reliably above 1m in the overnight ratings. But this year, someone moved the show from Friday to Thursday, and the returns are no good. 840k, 720k, 680k and 760k for the month of March. Alan is reportedly on a £5m 'golden handcuffs' deal with C4 which runs to 2017.

Noel Edmonds' Deal or No Deal started on C4 in 2005, produced by Endemol from a format developed in the Netherlands. It is approaching its 3,000 edition. The most recent was watched by 310k.
