Dara O'Briain hosting video game show - here are the celeb guests

Dara O'Briain is to add a new show, Go 8 Bit, to his hosting repertoire with the first episode airing on September 5.

The show will feature two teams of celebrities who will go toe-to-toe with one another in a variety of games. The teams will be captained by Steve McNeil and Sam Pamphilion.

Joining them will be Bob Mortimer, Russell Howard, Rachel Riley, David James, Jason Manford, Dave Gorman, Marcus Brigstocke, Gina Yashere, Ed Byrne, Josie Long, Holly Walsh, and Ellie Gibson.

Go 8 Bit begins on September 5 and will run for six weeks. Dara O'Briain seems like a fitting choice as the host considering how he slips video game segments into some of his standup routines.
