Channel 4’s Mash Up merges shows tonight

As Channel 4 prepares to celebrate 30 Years of broadcasting the network presents something they describe as ‘very special indeed’ as some of the channel’s most famous programmes are merged together. Shows taking part include Channel 4 News (pictured right), Countdown, The Million Pound Drop and 8 out of 10 Cats.

For one night only, a selection of familiar Channel 4 hosts are pushed out of their comfort zones by job swapping with each other in the aptly titled, Channel 4’s Mash Up.

Tonight from 6.30pm Channel 4’s Mash Up changes around much loved shows and much-loved faces including The Million Pound Drop which sees the tables turned as presenter Davina McCall becomes the contestant. Location, Location, Location host Phil Spencer steps out of the estate agents and into her shoes as host (pictured below right).

Location, Location, Location. Kirstie Allsopp teaches Alan Carr some of the tricks of the property trade. Will Alan manage to negotiate a very real house purchase for a very real single girl in need of a home?

Come Dine with Me – Made in Chelsea. Without the benefit of caterers, event organisers and hired help… who will cook up a storm?

8 out of 10 Cats Do Countdown. Hosted by Jimmy Carr with Sean Lock and Jon Richardson competing. Will the fiendish Countdown Conundrum beat the team?

Channel 4 Newsreaders do River Cottage. Move over Hugh, because Jon, Krishnan and Cathy are ready to get their hands dirty.

“Throughout the night a succession of hosts introduce the shows, plus there are sketches and special guests.” Channel 4 states.
