Friday (Xmas Day),
It’s another Christmas special, (as David Walliams put it, “we’ve called it a special and not a pilot in case it doesn’t do very well,” or words to that effect) this time with the nation’s sweetheart Bradley Walsh in charge of Emilia Fox, Jimmy Carr, Amir Khan, Danny Jones, Anita Rani and Sue Perkins helping (or not) members of the public to win prizes by filling in blanks.
This probably wouldn’t have happened without the successful Match Game revival in the US – note the Match Gamed-up logo and set. For me there’s a question mark as to whether Bradley Walsh is going to be the correct person for it – not a sleight against him, more a requirement of the format, but we hope we’re proved wrong.
