Professor Green, Rachel Riley, Anita Rani and Georgia Toffolo are the star names featuring in W‘s new commission My Famous Babysitter (4×60′).
In each episode of this new format a celebrity shock-tests the reality of twenty-first century parenting by taking full responsibility for a family of children.
My Famous Babysitter is commissioned for UKTV by Kirsty Hanson, commissioning editor with Hilary Rosen, head of factual and fact ent, and ordered by Richard Watsham, director of commissioning and Steve North, genre general manager for comedy and entertainment.
Kirsty Hanson said:
“My Famous Babysitter is an entertaining but revealing glimpse into the universal struggle that many of our viewers face daily; how we parent today as well as juggling everything else that modern life demands of us. This, juxtaposed with the tantalising prospect of learning something we don’t know about some of our favourite faces, will hopefully make for an absorbing series for our viewers and a worthwhile experience for the celebs.”
