Three hosts, across three different locations and two hemisphere…

The multi-award-winning and triple BAFTA-nominated entertainment series The Last Leg is returning to Channel 4 on Friday 8th May – but not quite as we know it.

The Last Leg: Locked Down Under will attempt a TV first; a live comedy show with three hosts in three different locations at the same time. The show will take viewers on a global tour from Melbourne, to London and finally Huddersfield, as hosts Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe, and Alex Brooker present from their respective homes to offer their unmatched satirical insight to current world events. In each episode, Adam, Josh, and Alex will be joined by special guests, and as always, the audience at home will be encouraged to get involved using their Twitter hashtag #isitok.

Ian Katz, Director of Programmes at Channel 4 said, ‘Adam, Josh and Alex will surely be setting a new record for the most socially distanced entertainment show on the planet by broadcasting live from their homes in Melbourne, London and Huddersfield. What can possibly go wrong?’

Phil Harris, Head of Entertainment at Channel 4 added, ‘The Last Leg boys have taken on everything from Brexit to the Paralympics but never a pandemic. The smartness, speed and adaptability of them and the team to get this show up and running has been incredible, and we can’t wait to have them back on Friday nights.’

The Last Leg: Locked Down Under starts on Friday 8th May at 10:00pm on Channel 4.
