BBC TO 'REVIVE FRIENDS LIKE THESE WITH VERNON KAY & ALISON HAMMOND'

The popular noughties gameshow - originally hosted by Ant & Dec - is set to return with the BBC filming a pilot in the new year with Vernon Kay and Alison Hammond.



A source told The Sun: "The BBC are filming a pilot for Friends Like These with Vernon and Alison in the New Year...



"Everyone involved in the reworking on the show is so excited to get started. They think they can make a real success of it. Friends Like These was a fun, family favourite TV show and it will easily slide back into the schedules...


"Vernon and Alison are good pals and have great chemistry off screen. So once the cameras are rolling those behind the reboot think it could be magical."



The BBC did not comment.
