New Chat Show for Sky One

Former Coronation Street actress Angela Griffin is to host her own Sky One chat show which will air live in the daytime schedules. The series is to be called Angela and Friends  Sky today confirmed.



Joining Angela each day will be her three co-presenting friends, on a rotating cycle. Confirmed names so far include Sara Cox, Duncan James, Lisa Faulkner, Jeremy Edwards, Zöe Salmon, Jayne Middlemiss, Amanda Lamb and Nancy Sorrell, each bringing a distinctly different dynamic to the small screen as they scour newspapers, magazines and websites for a variety of attention-grabbing headlines before gearing up to have their say on the subject in lively debate.




Angela Griffin commented: “I’m really, really excited about Angela and Friends, it’s an amazing opportunity that Sky has given me and I can’t wait to get started. It’s gonna be nerve wracking, but I’m determined to work hard and have major fun. It’s not every day you get your own show is it!”


Viewers will be able to immerse themselves in Angela’s world both on and off screen, interacting via Skype, Twitter and a variety of new media platforms, bringing the debate alive long after the show’s broadcast. The show will also feature a daily lifestyle club looking at books, films, health and beauty and fashion, which viewers can engage with directly via the website and a giant plasma wall in the studio.



The series starts on Monday 9th November 2009 on Sky One.
