Celebrity Juice bidding farewell on ITV2
June 29, 2022
After 26 seasons on ITV2, the multi award-winning Celebrity Juice fronted by Keith Lemon is to conclude later this year with two farewell specials celebrating all of the show’s maddest moments.
Across nearly 300 episodes, the BAFTA and National Television Award winning show has seen Keith play the wildest games and share the biggest laughs on’telly with famous faces from Ed Sheeran to Pamela Anderson to Will Mellor. Original team captains Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton started the Juice party with Keith way back in 2008. The wonderful Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore took on the mantle full-time in series 24, but before that Juice featured a fantastic roster of team captains including Gino D’Acampo, Mel B, Paddy McGuinness and Kelly Brook.
Keith, who has been the face of ITV2 for the past decade, will continue to appear on our teleboxes with Shopping with Keith Lemon, which returns to ITV2 and ITV Hub later this year. Now in its third series, a whole new set of celebrities will be spending some quality time with Keith Lemon, unearthing some fascinating insights into the lives of some of the most recognisable faces.
Keith Lemon said: “I remember doing the first episode thinking wow that was fun! In the V/O in opening titles I said it was the best telly show on telly. Whatever you thought of it, it was definitely the best fun making it. An amazing team, and amazing guests, but all good things must come to an end. I’ll miss it, and everyone so much, but on to the next chapter and I look forward to going out in style on the specials! All t’ best and good luck with ya business!”
Paul Mortimer Director of Reality, Acquisitions and Controller, ITV2, ITVBe and CITV said: “Celebrity Juice and Keith have become firm favourites in the ITV2 schedule over the years, with Keith’s no holds barred humour and outrageous antics redefining the comedy panel show experience. It’s safe to say Celebrity Juice certainly won’t be forgotten in a hurry, and we’d like to thank all of the team at Talkback, and of course Keith and all of our team captains over the years for making Juice the infectious TV hit it’s become.”
Jonno Richards, Managing Director of Talkback, adds: “Celebrity Juice has been the best show on ‘telly! We cannot be prouder to have made Juice with Keith for the past 14 years. We’ll forever miss the madness and mayhem but look forward to giving Juice the send-off it deserves, as well as seeing Shopping back on ITV2 later this year.”
