Erina Jones, UKTV's head of social and online, says: "Creating unique short-form series for Dave's social platforms will increase our offering of entertaining, funny and relatable content in the online world. It's an incredible opportunity to test out new formats, work with a new generation of talent and extend the enjoyment of our popular Dave Originals for existing fans, and hopefully entice a wave of new fans too. Dave's mission is to be as funny on social media as it is on air and we want people to enjoy spending time with us wherever they are. Our followers can now look forward to these new and exclusive shows on a weekly basis over the coming months."

Andrea Amey, who joined UKTV in December to lead the company's new digital strategy, adds: "UKTV's channels are incredibly strong but it's important we have something on offer for viewers who might not watch our shows in the traditional way, on linear TV. Younger audiences are spending increasing amounts of time on social media, so by creating bespoke and bite-sized shows online, I hope they'll find something they enjoy featuring Dave's well-known witty tone. When editorially appropriate, we'll also premiere the best of Dave's short-form content on our on-demand service, UKTV Play."
