Keith Lemon to host revived Through the Keyhole

Keith Lemon is set to host the newly revived series Through The Keyhole, with the approval of previous hosts Sir David Frost and Loyd Grossman.

The comedy alter-ego of funnyman Leigh Francis will follow in their footsteps to take a tour of homes of the rich and famous, exploring every nook and cranny so the three celebrity panellists can identify the mystery owner.

“When I was a young lad, all I wanted to be when I grew up was the boyfriend of Patsy Kensit, Kylie Minogue, or Belinda Carlisle. Be part of the A-Team, go back to the future or be the host of Through The Keyhole. Well, one of those dreams has come true!” said Keith.

“Not only am I the host of Keyhole, I’ll be going round the houses like Loyd Grossman, but with better shoes. I honestly can’t wait!”

Sir David, host of the original TV series, added: “I am delighted that the Keyhole format is now entering its fourth decade on TV. I know the pilot show went down very well with the studio audience and I wish Keith and his team the very best of luck for the series.”

Loyd also said: “Keith has definitely put a new spin on a very well-established, much-loved format. He has given Through The Keyhole a contemporary twist, but preserved the spirit and intention of the original programme. The series has contemporary entertainment values, whilst still retaining the parts we all loved of the original – namely the fascinating insights into people’s lives!”

The six episodes of the hour-long Through the Keyhole series is expected to screen on ITV later this year.
