Billy Butler has interviewed Harry Hill on his Festival Of Firsts artwork for BBC Merseyside.
Alongside walking through the art with Harry at the press launch last week, they also discussed his other work including TV Burp and You’ve Been Framed.
The interview revealed that Stars In Their Eyes rumour is not true and just a rumour, though Harry commented, perhaps revealing a little, that he wished it was and he would like to have a go, with it being a great format. Harry referenced ITV’s revivals of old formats in recent years and said that he is working on a new show for the channel.
He also said that they are looking into a nationwide tour of I Can’t Sing, commenting on the costs of a night out in the West End being expensive.
Finally, he added that he is starting to rehearse some material in clubs, as shown by recent dates.
A great interview from Billy that delves into his art and projects.
