I'll bet a fiver that Sarah Millican will make a guest appearance during the first series.
You're 100% correct Audio Rebel! (although there are certain male comedians who are also on every show). Also, they are also going to be having Josh Groban and Alice Cooper as guests! Here's a list of 17 guests. I don't know how many episodes this series will be.

I'm curious to know who was on the episodes that people in this thread saw.

Perhaps. If it goes out after 9, then can edit a lot of the good stuff back in!

Room 101 should be a 10pm show. I wonder if they'll get an XL edition?

What I don't get is that they recorded about 2.5 hours and if it's to be just 30 minutes, they won't just cut out the waffle - but all the good stuff too.
The same happened when i went to the recording of "Opinionated" back in April this year.The recording took just over 3hrs.

They must expect to get the panel to talk absolute nonsense, or have a category they can drop completely. They also had an audience suggestion, which was rubbish. I hope that goes!

Sounds alright but the guest list is a touch woeful... Maybe cause Frank's pissed off so many people over the years!

Scheduled for January 2012 on BBC1. The recording earlier this week suggested an 8:30pm slot too, but this far in advance nothing is set in stone.

Thanks,

So glad there is going to be more Frank on TV along with Opinionated coming back.

I canít believe that blogger got such a good picture of the new set! I went to the recording on Monday and whilst I canít remember if they actually said donít take pictures they are normally VERY strict on such things! And that pics looks almost professional! Get that guy a job as a spy!

No too disimilar setup to The Bubble or Have You Been Watching. I supposed there's not much leeway with a host and three guests.

I miss the conveyor belt that used to carry the object along and then hit to the floor with a crash!

does Frank put anything in the 2 vaults or is that just decoration?

No, they are just decoration.

Each seat has a box next to it where the item to pitch for being put in room 101 appears. What happens when an item is chosen is it goes back down, and the cover comes over - then it appears on the screen going into the vault.

Thanks for the tip-off Samusek2,it was guaranteed she'd pop up somewhere along the line as she is the #1 queen of panel show celeb appearances.No doubt her love of cakes will get a mention!!

"People who don't like cake. 'Cause I love it and people who don't, make me sad."
I can just imagine her quoting those exact words !!

And the first guests are Fern Britton, Robert Webb and Danny Baker, which is the one that i went to see. It also means that are not airing in the order they were filmed as this was the 3rd episode to be recorded.

That's the one I went to as well!

I wish I'd remembered to let people know on here that they were offering out more audience tickets at the start of January. Sorry!

I went to see one of the recordings on Tuesday which had Rebecca Front, Micky Flanagan and John Prescott as guests. I enjoyed it, it had some very funny bits but I think it's too much like a panel show now and as such I don't think it will last as long as the previous formats did.

I find Mr Skinner is a bit of a creepy persona to watch. One less programme to consider in my personal tv scheduling.

I've only seen reports that Skinner has been confirmed. I've seen it posted about being a panel show but no report or confirmation about it.


I thought Dara O Briain or even Sean Lock could be good choices. They've both hosted similar shows in the past. I guess Skinner is also a good choice though and the others may have other comitments.
The Sean Locke one about the best and worst TV (it turned out to be all rubbish) was surprisingly good. Most were very good. But apart from me I think the viewing figures would be very low.

Does anyone remember that Who Would You Invite To Dinner? With Ann Robinson - choose five guests dead or alive (y'know what I mean)

Well, The Sun said (before the first episode was aired) thast Ricky Gervais would be first guest and the first thing AR said to him was he looks fatter in real life. His choices were obvious type ones, Elvis, Ghandi, JfK, Ali types.

BUT strangely if was NEVER shown. Anyone know why?

The Ricky Gervais one was a non-broadcast pilot I think. Guess it just never got past that stage.
