While this new show may have celebrities it is lacking in one area: originality.
We already have several painting challenge shows, namely Portrait Artist of the Year and Landscape Artist of the Year on Sky Arts, and these shows have their own celebrity versions. This new BBC show is nothing new.
Nevertheless, Mariella Frostrup hosts, with the celebrity contestants taking part being Amber Le Bon, Josie d’Arby, George Shelley, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Jane Seymour and Phil Tufnell. The opening challenge? Painting Keith Allen – in the nude.
Celebrity Painting Challenge is on BBC One at 20.00.
