You Saw Them Here First

Taking ‘a before they were famous’ look at some of our favourite stars across the planet.

Taking ‘a before they were famous’ look at some of our favourite stars across the planet, this series, which made its own debut in July 2013, has become one of ITV’s most popular peak-time ‘clip’ shows.

As well as revealing clips of stars in ways you wouldn’t expect to see them (including Chris O’Dowd as a Gaelic football goalkeeper) the show has also invited celebrities in to our ‘video box’ to look back (often through their fingers…) at their TV past.

Stars who have taken up the invite so far include Phil Schofield, Michelle Collins, Lorraine Kelly, Patsy Kensit, Alison Steadman, Brian Blessed, Chris Tarrant and Coronation Street’s Rita and Mavis, Barbara Knox and Thelma Barlow.

All the shows have been produced by Stephen McGinn and executive produced by Andrew Nicholson and latterly Mark Robinson. Robert Webb and John Thomson have narrated the series.
