The Fantastical Factory of Curious Craft will air on Channel 4 in 2020…

Keith Lemon and Anna Richardson are to host a new six-part series on Channel 4 that hopes to do for crafting what Bake Off did for, er, baking.

The Fantastical Factory Of Curious Craft is a brand new competitive series in the works that will feature four eager crafters per episode facing off to “use their unique creative skill set, to stick, sew, hammer and craft their creations in to life”, first by making bespoke items from a brief, then recycling them after an elimination.

“What do you get if you cross Keith Lemon, craft, the host of Naked Attraction and a factory full of glitter?” asked Sarah Lazenby, Channel 4 Head of Features and Formats, in a statement. “The answer is a world of pure imagination, and we can’t wait for this joyous format to burst on to screens soon!”

Keith Lemon added, “I’ve always had love for making things, drawing and painting. I’m also a very good dancer. But that’s for a different show. I honestly can’t wait to get in that Fantastical World of Factory of curious craft to marvel at the mad skills of our crafters! In fact, I’m changing my middle name of Ian to ‘craft’! Keith Crafty Lemon! Word!”

The series is set to get underway on Channel 4 in the early months of 2020.
