The Living channel (it’s on Sky) has commissioned its first ever scripted UK comedy for a programme about the comeback of fictional ex-Page Three girl Gayle Tuesday, who is of course, played by Brenda Gilhooly.
The hour-long pilot is being filmed in a documentary style and will air on Living in September.
In the show, we’ll follow Gayle’s progress as she attempts to revive her career in showbusiness, including botox treatment, charity work and a reality cookery show.
The script has been written by Harry Hill, who will also appear in the pilot, along with chef Heston Blumenthal and Pineapple Dance Studios star Louie Spence.
Other cameos in the programme will come from Ainsley Harriott, Toyah Willcox, Paul O’Grady and Hollyoaks actress Roxanne McKee.
“Gayle is back, and where else would she want to be than on Living, the UK’s top celebrity channel,” said the Living TV Group’s head of commissioning Mark Sammon.
“We know that Living’s young audience love scripted comedy on the channel, like US hit Cougar Town, so we’re very excited to have made our first commissioning step into this genre and to have secured the services of such a great comedy writer and performer in Brenda.”
