The King is Dead

Episode 7: Long Live the Best Bits

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC ThreeLatest broadcast: on BBC Three

Could James Corden be the next president of the USA? Would Caprice make a good chief of police? Would Louis Walsh make a good king? Almost certainly not.

A public figure is hypothetically bumped off and a comic interview panel scours the celebrity pool for a top-notch replacement in this comedy panel show. This is not a typical HR department - the last Father Christmas probably didn't get the job based on the ability to smash up a signed picture of the Loose Women with a ski, and the former chief of police almost certainly avoided having his or her feet licked by an alsatian - and this isn't a typical interview panel. Simon Bird, Nick Mohammed and Katy Wix guide the process each time.

A look back at the best bits of the series and some unseen material from the six strangest job interviews ever seen on TV. Show less
