UK TV channel ITV2 has commissioned Shopping With Keith Lemon, from Talkback, part of Fremantle. 

The brand new 8x30’ series will see the irrepressible Keith Lemon (Celebrity Juice) let loose on his own chat show, the company said. 

Shopping With Keith Lemon will see the chat show format move away from the constraints of a studio setting and will instead see Keith and his celebrity guests taking to the streets and hitting the shops, where along the way they will be interviewed by the host in his own inimitable style.  

Shopping themed chat show

Airing on ITV2 in June 2019, each of the eight episodes will see Keith meeting up with two famous faces, before getting to know them better, as they go about their respective shopping trips. 

Keith will join celebrities including: Spice Girl Mel B, as she heads off on her weekly food shop, pop-punk band Busted, who are on the hunt for a new guitar, and Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, who Keith interviews as she travels over the Channel to France on a booze cruise.

Providing the perfect opportunity to delve into the shopping habits of the rich and famous, whilst having a good old gossip, Keith and his celebrity friends will be let loose in shops around the UK and overseas, where viewers will get to see how the other half love to spend their money, on everything from beds to cars to hummus. 

“I’m a shopper-holic that likes gossiping!” Said Host Keith Lemon. “What better way to spend my day than shopping and gossiping with famous people? Perfect job for me!”

Celebrity line-up

Other celebrities off shopping with Keith, include: Fearne Cotton, who will re-unite with Keith for the first time since leaving Celebrity Juice, Caroline Flack, comedian Rob Beckett, Emily Atack and David Dickinson, with more star shoppers to be announced. 

“Keith Lemon has a uniquely brilliant interview style, and in Shopping we get classic Keith moments alongside juicy and revealing interviews, all the while shopping for cars, crisps, and much more besides”, said Jonno Richards, Talkback’s Acting Managing Director.

Saskia Schuster, ITV’s Controller of Comedy, added: “Would you spill all your secrets to Keith Lemon whilst doing your shopping? ITV2 viewers are about to find out."

Shopping With Keith Lemon was ordered for ITV2 by Saskia Schuster, Controller, Comedy at ITV. It is made for ITV2 by Talkback (part of Fremantle), and Executive Produced by Leon Wilson and Jonno Richards. The Series Producer is Jessie Swanson.
