Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule returns to ITV this April
 
Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule will return to ITV this April with a brand new series airing on Saturday nights.
 
The comedy panel show sees Harry Hill preside over two teams of celebrities tasked with saving planet earth from alien invasion! 
 
Guests coming up in the (7x30) second series include Alex Brooker, Robert Peston, Anneka Rice, Micky Flanagan, Moira Stuart, Una Stubbs, Louis Walsh, Johnny Vegas, Sue Johnston, Anita Rani, Cannon and Ball and Chizzy Akudolu.
 
Highlights from the first series included Des O’Connor playing ‘chipolata or regular sausage’, local news round up, the Coventry Market sing-a-long and of course the occasional appearance of Alan the Alien.  Guests in the first series included Kathy Burke, Joe Lycett, Lorraine Kelly, Josh Widdicombe, Nish Kumar, Des O’Connor and Raleigh Ritchie.  
 
Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule was commissioned by ITV’s Comedy Controller Saskia Schuster. It will be produced by Nit Television, the joint venture between Harry Hill and CPL Productions, a Red Arrow Studio company with Mobashir Dar, Murray Boland, Danielle Lux and Harry Hill, executive producing.
 
Saskia Schuster added: "Harry’s back to save planet earth and the show is as silly as ever – in fact, this second series takes it to a whole new level of silliness! We’ve got a really varied guest list joining Harry for the new series so anything can happen.” 
 
Harry Hill said: “May I make it quite clear that despite the rumours there is nothing ‘silly’ about this show – it is a serious attempt to solve a huge problem – how to prevent an alien invasion! All I am saying is maybe, just maybe the world can be saved with laughter.  For series 2 we’ve tweaked the format and I’m pleased to say it’s thinner than ever – I can’t wait!”
