UKTV has announced that Tom Allen is to front a new Dave panel show – The Island – in which comedians will devise their dream desert island.
Four comics – as yet unnamed – will compete every week to make their own personal dream desert island the best one.
Allen will put these four islands, and their leaders to the test. Who’s got the best house band? How do you even judge that? And you may think you want your island’s only drink to be Fanta Limon, but what happens when it attracts that swarm of angry bees you chose last week?
The Island was devised – during Snowmageddon in New York City, no less – by James Acaster, Ed Gamble, Lloyd Langford and John Robins, who are also executive producers, and will air later this year on Dave.
