Steph and Dom sign up for Celebrity Call Centre

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

TalkRADIO’s very own Steph and Dom Parker have signed up for a new instalment of Celebrity Call Centre.

Eight celebrities will take calls from the public, from festive "quandaries to troublesome affairs of the heart", in a Christmas special with Age UK.

They will include Strictly Come Dancing finalist Debbie McGee, Countdown's Nick Hewer, Ackley Bridge's Sunetra Sarker, comedian James Acaster and DJ Gemma Cairney as well as actress Amanda Barrie.

Executive producer Steven D Wright said: "Using wit, humour and honesty, our celebrities give great advice about every aspect of the yuletide season - ranging from practical tips on, say, how to cook a turkey to offering genuine emotional support to callers struggling with loneliness on Christmas day."

Kathi Hall, head of content strategy and brand at Age UK, said: "While Christmas can be a time of great celebration, it can also be a difficult time, especially for those who are alone or whose families are far away.

"Some of the calls that the celebrities answered were quite poignant and hopefully this will bring a greater awareness of what older people have to face if they have no-one to turn to... the Age UK advice line is open 365 days a year."

The show is set to air in December.
