Lee Mack is to host a new TV comedy show.

First & Last, which is currently in the early stages of development, is described as an "ingeniously simple comedy game show".

The producers explain: "Lee Mack put members of the public through a succession of hilarious and imaginative rounds, all of which have the same simple premise - you mustn't come first and you mustn't come last. Because if you do, you're eliminated from the game."

They add: "Eleven players start the show. A wide range of funny, skill and judgement based games stand between them and a big cash prize."
It's not currently known which channel the format is being developed for.

A run-through to test the show is due to be recorded at Pinewood Studios on Wednesday 11th April. Free tickets

Series 9 of Lee Mack's sitcom is currently airing on BBC One on Thursday nights. He is now writing Series 10 and recently revealed the next series - which will air in 2019 - will feature an episode broadcast live.

Mack's next job is performing alongside his Would I Lie To You? co-stars Rob Brydon and David Mitchell at a series of sold-out dates in Cheltenham.

Further details about First & Last, including whether the pilot will be shown on TV, are expected to be revealed in due course.
