Rylan Clark-Neal's star-studded chat show line-up
Rylan Clark-Neal will launch his new chat show on Monday (09.05.16) with a star-studded line-up.
Alesha Dixon, Keith Lemon, Shakka, Ferne McCann and Anthea Turner will all appear on the debut episode of 'Up Late with Rylan' on Channel 5, while Shakira will perform her new single 'You Don't Know What You Do to Me'.
And 'Geordie Shore's Charlotte Crosby will join the show for the week as its resident barmaid.
Ahead of the launch, Rylan channelled his inner James Bond when he dressed up as the suave super spy for some promotional shots.
Channel 5 Commissioner Steve Regan commented: "Like any good Bond film, Rylan's late night entertainment show promises to be fast-paced and exciting, packed with twist and turns. We've let Rylan off the leash and so expect engaging guests, mischievous games and plenty of surprises."
And Rylan added: "Many of James Bond's best moments happened late at night and with my brand new show 'Up Late with Rylan', I have been given a licence to entertain. You can't get any more British than OO7 and with my new show launching in the sophisticated setting of Central London and packed with star guests, it's the perfect way to warm up for the series.
"Sitting at the wheel of an Aston Martin DB5 and becoming James Bond for the day was great fun. To be honest, I'm more of a Dame Judi Dench than Daniel Craig so probably should've recreated some of her scenes too!"
The 27-year-old funnyman is hoping to rival the likes of Alan Carr, Graham Norton and Jonathan Ross as his forthcoming show, which will be filmed on the evening of transmission from The Hospital Club in Central London and promised it will be "truly topical" and packed full of social buzz and live music.
He recently explained: "I can't wait to get started and show you how much fun we're all going to have together. I can promise you it will be lively but light hearted, energetic and always entertaining."
'Up Late with Rylan' will broadcast four nights a week at 11pm on Channel 5.
