Pete Wicks has joined new BBC gameshow ‘Hack Attack’.
The ‘TOWIE’ star will star on the new programme with ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’ duo Tia Kofi and Lawrence Chaney, and former ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ star Snoochie Sky.
The show will task famous faces with answering questions correctly, or risk having their embarrassing secrets revealed by a hacker who has managed to access their phones.
The BBC Studios show will be a digital release with 10 episodes airing via Funny Parts on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
The lineup also includes actor Scheiffer Bates, podcaster Poppy Jay, ‘The Sandman’ star Donna Preston, and comedians Mary O’Connell, Helen Bauer and Ali Woods.
The gameshow – which launches today (01.12.22) also appears on the social media channels alongside ‘Little Rants’, which sees the same cast get to complain about the things that have been bothering them.
Meanwhile, BBC has also announced ‘Sound Off’, which celebrates “the new superstars of silent comedy” as Bash the Entertainer and Elf Lyons try to do make each other laugh without making a sound.
Athena Witter – vice president of programming at BBC Studios’ digital consumer engagement division – commented: “Funny Parts offers both a home for our new digital-first comedy and entertainment content and also allows us to tap into a fantastic wealth of recent comedy content made for Gen-Z audiences.
“These three new commissions are a great example of our approach to developing, testing and delivering new shows direct to audiences.”
Chris Allen – head of development – added: “This is an opportunity for us to showcase new talent and rising stars, to encourage innovation and is really what our digital-first strategy is all about.
“We can’t wait to share these funny and fresh new shows and to keep dropping new content that brings people back to the channel.”
