And You Are...?

Miranda Hart hosts a panel show about people who share the same name

Genre
Panel Show

UPDATE: This format is now known as Insert Name Here, with Sue Perkins as host.

Hosted by the queen of comedy, Miranda Hart, And You Are...? is a tongue-in-cheek panel show about people who share the same name. It's like Top Trumps with celebrities.

A group of famous people, with absolutely nothing in common but their first name, are reviewed and rated by a panel of fully qualified comedians.

This pilot looked at Davids. "We've rounded up the biggest, best and weirdest Davids. We've gone back in time and found famous, infamous and plain crazy Davids. We'll be finding about David Hasselhoff's screen disasters, David Cameron's funniest secrets and how Dave Lee Roth relaxes between gigs. From Dickinson to Beckham, from Blaine to Bowie, from David Haye to King David II of Ethiopia, we'll cover them all."


Britain's Favourite

In the first pilot episode (titled Britain's Favourite), Miranda Hart was due to find Britain's favourite Steve, but the recording was pulled at the last minute. The description was:

Is Stephen Hawking better than Steve Davis? Is Six Million Dollar Man Steve Austin superior to Steven Seagal? What about England captain Steven Gerrard? Is Shakin' Stevens even a Steve?

There'll be plenty of silliness: a battle to do the best impression of Steve McFadden, a challenge to find the best Steve in the audience, a list of people who didn't make the shortlist, such as Seve Ballesteros (out by just one letter) and a chance to see all the best bits from Steve Guttenberg's career (a 15 second montage). All worthy candidates, but which will the audience vote as the nation's favourite?
