You will never guess who is helping Jimmy Kimmel write Emmy jokes

Jimmy Kimmel has revealed the identity of his best joke writer – his two-year-old.

The talk show star is hosting the Emmys this weekend and tweeted a picture of himself doing some last minute work on his gags, with daughter Jane giving a hand.

Jimmy has been busy rehearsing for the big night, and is keeping his followers in the loop with a series of tweets.

The Emmys are due to be handed out tonight (Sunday) and will see British stars Idris Elba, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston vying for best lead actor in a limited series or movie.
