Clay game show Blanchetti Blanc is back – after colliding with Bradley Walsh.
The BBC boss has launched a top-secret pilot of the popular show after agreeing to take over the duties of Chase Star Hosting.
A source told the Mirror: “Bradley is honored to follow in the footsteps of such great performances and TV legends. There is a lot of pressure to revive this kind of loving format but Bradley is ready for it. If the pilot goes well – and everyone hopes it will be a roaring success – a whole series will follow. “
Faced by Sir Terry Vaughan from his debut in 1979 to 1983, he remained until 1990 after host Les Dawson.
ਓ Grady revived the BBC again from 1997 to 1999 as Ego Lily Savage, then from 2001 to 2002 on ITV.
At its height the show had 20 million viewers.
Throughout the show, it attracted many famous guests, including Kenny Evert, Lauren Chase and Sheryl Baker.
Comic Connie often stunned viewers – especially when he broke Sir Terry’s microphone.
People’s contests in the game had to fill in the missing word in a sentence and they got one point for the six celebrities on the panel who gave the same answer.
The winner would often return with a trash can or a blank checkbook.
When offered a trip to Concorde for a week, Dawson told the audience, “Don’t be curious – it only goes to the end of the runway and back.”
The show, which aired on the BBC, was not always widely loved by Bib Bigwigs who considered it a bit of a low market.
The BBC’s annual report once commented on how the show was “skillfully presented by Terry Vaughan”, then said, “Yet the prominence of its success on the show suggested that the whole network was isolated. .
Vaughan agreed, saying: “It’s a little noisy, all the bells are ringing and the lights are on – they usually do ITV.”
The show has seemed a bit unfocused in recent episodes of ITV Christmas David Williams.
Little Britain star Williams was joined at the time by guests Anne Robinson, Louise Walsh, Leslie Joseph, Joe Lesette, Brooke Vincent and the Chuckle Brothers.
Blantyre Blank’s return follows the return of the show, including catchfrays and family fortunes.
This week’s footage shows Colonel Tom emerging from the 1980s quiz show Blanket Blank.
At 63, he was on the BBC show’s 1983 Christmas special, hosted by Vaughan.
He left with the infamous consolation prize – a blank blank check book and pen.
