ITV has given the go-ahead to a new Saturday night chat show fronted by Paul O'Grady.
The news comes 18 months after the 65-year-old recorded a non-broadcast pilot for the show, which will be called Paul O'Grady: Saturday Night Line-Up.
"This will never get to a series," he joked to the audience. "It's the dirtiest show that is possible on telly. It is too rude. But they want a bit of rudeness now.
"I mean who the fuck wants to watch Alan Titchmarsh? You know what they are like at ITV, they are a bit leg-crossed aren't they?
"Phil and Holly – the pair who piss themselves if somebody says 'bum'."
Paul O'Grady: Saturday Night Line-Up is expected to air on ITV over seven weeks from the autumn.
