Alison Hammond will spend 48 hours with celebrities in BBC interview show

The six-part series, called Alison Hammond’s Big Weekend, promises to give a glimpse into the homes and lives of famous faces while being full of laughs and revelations.

Birmingham-born Hammond said: “I’m so excited to serve up some big lols (laugh out louds) and tons of omg (oh my god) revelations on the BBC as I spend some quality time with some of the UK’s favourite celebrities.

“When I’m on a mission no secret is safe, and trust me no stone or cupboard will go unturned.”

The 49-year-old TV personality rose to fame on Big Brother before competing on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and Strictly Come Dancing.

She is also a presenter of ITV’s This Morning with Dermot O’Leary on Fridays, where some of her celebrity interviews have gone viral including one with Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford.

The Hollywood actors were promoting the 2017 film Blade Runner 2049 when Hammond brought them to hysterics by discussing knitting and knocking back whisky.

Hammond has also hosted the backstage of the Baftas and is a co-host of Channel 4’s The Great British Bake Off with comedian Noel Fielding.

Kalpna Patel-Knight, head of entertainment at the BBC, said: “Alison is one of the most warm-hearted presenters in the UK and it’s no surprise that big name celebrities are lining up to have her spend the weekend at their homes. It’s going to be a blast.”

Mel Balac, creative director for entertainment at BBC Studios, added: “Alison is the perfect woman for the job.

“She wears her heart on her sleeve and her incredible openness, energy and warmth will shed new light on the celebrities she spends the weekend with. When Alison comes knocking it’s a special appointment you won’t want to miss.”

The celebrity guests will be announced at a later date.

Alison Hammond’s Big Weekend will arrive on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in 2025.
