Stand Up And Deliver follows five famous faces as they are paired up with established comics who'll mentor them and train them on their journey to have audiences rolling in the aisles.

Broadcaster Reverend Richard Coles, Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder, former Conservative Party co-chairwoman Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, Love Island's Curtis Pritchard and former Coronation Street actress Katie McGlynn are each be paired up with an established comic who'll mentor and train them in their attempt to master the art of stand-up comedy.

David Baddiel will coach Reverend Richard Coles, Jason Manford will be tasked with shepherding Shaun Ryder, Nick Helm will guide Baroness Warsi, Judi Love will be in charge of Curtis Pritchard and Zoe Lyons will champion Katie McGlynn.

Each celebrity will have to perfect their routine and perform in a special gala performance. It's a nerve-shredding, rib-tickling experience that forces our famous faces firmly out of their comfort zone and into a whole new world of performance pain. But only one star will be crowned Stand Up And Deliver Champion 2020. So, who'll have the last laugh?
