ITV orders new Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness show

The Keith and Paddy Picture Show is on its way from ITV - a programme that will see the two northerners recreate some of their favourite iconic movies.

Each episode will combine the "high-end film parodies", helped along by a celebrity cast, with "behind-the-scenes mock-doc footage" of the lads, chronicling the trials and tribulations of bringing classic movies to life.

So what can we expect from the programme? Keith Lemon says: "Paddy and I spoke about doing this years ago, and the dream is finally becoming a reality. I've stopped eating bread, to make it easier for Paddy to do 'the lift' when we recreate Dirty Dancing. I'm also excited to be eaten by a shark and be punched in't face by the Italian Stallion that is actually from Bolton. Word!"

On a more serious note, Leon Wilson of Talkback said: "Leigh Francis and Paddy McGuinness are a brilliant comic double act, and Talkback are delighted to have them both on board. Recreating well-known, iconic movies, this part scripted comedy, part mock-doc will have something in it for everyone and is a chance for Keith and Paddy to share their love of film with the Saturday night ITV audience."

Talkback is the company creating and producing the show.

The first series of The Keith and Paddy Picture Show will consist of five, 30-minute episodes. It'll arrive on ITV in spring 2017 - on Saturday nights, of course.
