The programme will air on Sky1, with Ricky as the host, and Nicole and Tinie Tempah as team captains, alongside comedian Katherine Ryan, and you’d be forgiven for feeling a sense of deja vu at the show’s format.
While ‘Bring The Noise’ will feature live performances, the show will welcome celebrity guests, and feature music trivia rounds, funny videos and games. Yes, it’s basically a way snazzier version of ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’.
Ricky and Nicole have a tough task on their hands if they’re hoping to fill the void left by the once glorious BBC panel show, but it seems that they’re up to the challenge.
“Nicole, Tinie and Katherine are all completely brilliant and ridiculous in equal measure,” Ricky explains. “I'm no stranger to music based TV shows with a competitive element, but this is taking music TV to another level. Swing by the off licence, phone for a takeaway, and settle in with ‘Bring the Noise’."
"I'm so happy to be involved in this exciting, new, multi faceted show - it's like nothing out there,” adds Nicole. “I'm looking forward to letting loose, sharing some hidden talents and just having some fun!"
‘Buzzcocks’ was cancelled earlier this year when ratings hit an all-time low, but the show was once hugely popular with TV and music fans.
‘Bring The Noise’ certainly has a huge task on its hands if the team are hoping to provide us with golden moments akin to Preston from The Ordinary Boys throwing a paddy and storming off, and the wonderful Amy Winehouse, offering the best Tim Westwood anecdote in the entire world.
‘Bring The Noise’ will air on Sky1 this autumn.
