Hosted by everyone's favourite dysfunctional TV couple, Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont, this new panel show 'Jon & Lucy's Odd Couples' will really get to the heart of relationships. And after watching, you may or may not still want to be in one!
Each week, Jon & Lucy will welcome two celebrity couples to the studio to put their relationships under the microscope. Not only that, but they'll also be sending them all off to a luxurious couples retreat for some inciteful R&R; or so they think anyway.
Overseeing all of the shenanigans and offering up the best advice, is our resident relationship expert Charlene Douglas. Nothing will go unnoticed!
Each episode features two pairs of showbiz lovebirds daring to subject themselves to Jon and Lucy’s probing into their private lives. Relationship secrets are spilled as dirty laundry is aired, grievances shared and irritations examined, all while Jon, Lucy and a professional marriage therapist sit on in judgement, on the hunt for the perfection.
The road to be crowned a perfect couple begins before the celebs even get to the studio, when Jon and Lucy take them to a special couples' retreat to complete a variety of daft, physical games designed to test key relationship skills such as communication and trust.
Jon Richardson said: "For too long now I have snuck out of our house and, behind her back, told audiences around the country about the things Lucy does that annoy me. I am grateful to Channel 4 for giving me the opportunity to air these grievances to her face and hope audiences enjoy the opportunity to see a small and petty man roasted and humiliated in return, as celebrity guests and a studio audience watch on with glee. I hope we can make a show that will generate some much-needed laughter, make couples realise that their relationships are not as bad as they thought and make single people appreciate how lucky they are."
Lucy Beaumont said: "Jon doesn't want to spend time with celebrities and I don't want to spend time with Jon, so I think Channel 4 have found the perfect recipe for a couples based panel show. Good luck to us all in all honesty, and I hope people can feel slightly better about their own relationships, and we can laugh in the face of celibacy."
Filmed at dock10 studios 'Jon & Lucy's Odd Couples' is coming to your screens this January on Channel 4.
