Lionel Blair’s Christmas Charades proved a hit with Twitter users today. As the former Give Us A Clue team captain entertained tweeters.
The event was the first live Twitter led game show created by digital agency Collective and saw tweets about the Give Us A Clue legend’s tap dancing and Mick Jagger impression flood in, with Twitter users correctly guessing the charades winning signed Lionel prizes.
The event, over three episodes, was hosted by Joe Fry and can been seen again here, http://www.collectivelondon.com/lionelscharades/ (opens in a new window)
Lionel performed his new Charade challenges in a 1970s styled set based on the old Thames Television produced favourite. The 69-year-old dancer, who’s been appearing on television screens since the 1950s, proved he still “has it” by lively performing for the cameras.
Give Us A Clue ran on ITV from 1979 to 1992 and had a brief revival in 1997 on the BBC. Earlier this year the series returned for a one-off internet special hosted by Sara Cox which saw Lionel Blair reunited with his old team captain rival, Una Stubbs. The BBC webcast version was for Comic Relief.
