Could you be the next viral superstar?
Brand new to ITV2, Viral Tap is a cheeky panel show that takes a humorous sideways look at the week’s events using online clips and virals. Coming to ITV2 this Spring.
Caroline Flack hosts the series with comedians Matt Richardson and Carly Smallman as regular panellists, with the third seat on the panel filled each week from a mix of comedians and online superstars, including Jim Chapman.
Each week the panellists search through Viral Tap’s collection of viewers’ videos and reveal their favourites on the show. They’ll be looking for the funniest, the most outrageous and the most awe-inspiring, with the ambition of picking that week’s most popular video.
Viewers can earn up to a £1,000 per clip if they are played on the show. To submit a video simply go to the website which also has details of the panelists’ special requests - unique video ideas that a viewer could turn into the next big online hit.
The series will also feature many ‘viral superstars’, the A-list of the viral video world, including Jim Chapman, who's videos have had over 48 million views.
Each week, a celebrity guest will join the panel after being set a challenge to launch their own video…with the aim of making it go viral!

It was ordered by Angela Jain, Director of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, commissioned by Kate Maddigan, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment at ITV. The Executive Producers are Bert Gray for Yalli Productions and Philip Kampff for VIP.
