BBC Three has given the green-light to a new panel show titled Sweat The Small Stuff which will be hosted by BBC Radio 1 breakfast presenter Nick Grimshaw. The series has been given a two season pick-up, with the show’s first season having received an order for 8 episodes.
Sweat The Small Stuff is produced by Talkback and, in addition to Grimshaw as the host, will feature as team captains Kiss FM DJ’s Rickie and Melvin alongside regular panelist Rochelle Humes. The series, which is slated to launch in “early 2013”, will see Grimshaw share his daily, fickle obsessions with his celebrity guests, putting the teams through a series of games and questions to draw out the really important matters in life.
Speaking of Sweat The Small Stuff, host Nick Grimshaw said: “Really excited about my new show! Being the host of a panel show is what self-centred dreams are made of and I can’t wait to show off on both the radio and now, primetime television!”
BBC Three Controller, Zai Bennett, commented: “Sweat The Small Stuff has been built around the annoyingly talented Nick Grimshaw. We can’t wait for Nick to show off and have fun with our brilliant team captains Melvin and Rickie and find out what guests like our regular panellist, pop sensation Rochelle Hume, have been sweating about. Sweat The Small Stuff promises to be quick-witted, topical and silly, but most of all very, very funny.”
While Managing Director of Talkback, and Sweat The Small Stuff executive producer, Dan Baldwin, added: “We are delighted to have secured such outstanding talent on Sweat The Small Stuff. Grimmy is a fantastically exciting broadcaster who is both very funny and a brilliant raconteur. Rickie and Melvin bring a huge audience with them from Kiss FM and their rivalry will be a key part of the show. And Rochelle is such a talented young woman who, unfortunately for Rickie and Melvin, is not afraid to speak her mind! Sweat The Small Stuff is a unique show which will share its content with the public and feed off the public’s own fickle obsessions. It really is an exciting show and we are delighted with the commission.”
