Dropping straight into the busiest weeks of the sporting calendar, You Cannot Be Serious! is a peak-time topical entertainment show which will mix clips, sketches and impressions. Skewering all the funniest, quirkiest, and silliest clips from the week’s televised sport, the show will also see legendary sports fanatic ALISTAIR MCGOWAN write new sketches and work on brand new impressions for TV for the first time in eight years.

As the show will be totally topical we can’t say exactly what will feature, but viewers can expect a hilarious take on the week’s biggest, best and most talked about sporting events. With Euro 2012 Football, Wimbledon and Test Cricket, not to mention the frenzied build-up to the London Olympics, there’s sure to be plenty of mishaps, bizarre news and sports stars like ROBBIE SAVAGE, GARETH SOUTHGATE and ROY HODGSON for ALISTAIR to impersonate, as well as deliver a trademark light ribbing to. Not just a show for the hardened sports fanatic however, expect ALISTAIR to impersonate a host of other showbiz favourites like LOUIE SPENCE, PETER ANDRE and JESSIE J who will all shoulder their way into the You Cannot Be Serious! world to add their particular spin in some surprising sports situations.

ALISTAIR MCGOWAN said: “I’ve always had more feedback about my impressions of sport stars than anyone else and it’s been brilliant to be working on a new generation of people we see on TV all the time. This show won’t just be for the sports nuts though and I’m really looking forward to putting some surprising showbiz faces into the middle of it all too.”

The series will also see HARRY HILL as Executive Producer on the show and is the first time that ALISTAIR has worked with HARRY since both were starting to make their mark on the UK comedy scene back in 1992 with the BBC Radio 4 show When Harry Met Ally.
