Angela Scanlon sits down with a host of celebrity guests to revisit cultural highlights from the noughtiest decade, in a new 10-part series for BBC Two.
It was the decade that brought us J.Lo’s green gown, Big Brother, The DaVinci Code, Adele’s debut album and brand Beckham was born. We fell crazy in love with Beyoncé, got introduced to David Brent, discovered who shot Phil and learned how to keep dancing with Bruce and Tess.
In The Noughties (10x60’), Angela will be joined by two celebrity guests each week, where they’ll discuss the films, music, dramas, comedies, fashion and entertainment highlights that shaped every year between 2000-2009.
Celebrity guests joining Angela across the series include Clara Amfo, Russell Kane, Amol Rajan and Kimberley Walsh. Each guest will have looking over the highlights, revealing their personal favourite moments, and explaining why the year they’re discussing was so important to them.
Angela Scanlon says: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to revisit The Noughties remembering some of the wildest telly/pop culture moments and celebrating the highlights with my amazing array of guests. From fashion and sporting icons, TV talent shows to our favourite sitcoms and the stars that dominated the headlines... this decade was punchy! It also allowed me to wear a velour tracksuit with rhinestone boots (again) and for that I am forever grateful. I hope it will offer a little escape and take people on a trip down memory lane to a time where what The Beckhams wore was a deliciously pressing global matter.”
