Katherine Lynch's Big Fat Breakfast Show

Katherine Lynch's Big Fat Breakfast Show is an all new genre-busting telly concept. Yes, it's Daytime TV.in the dark!

Anchored by comic Katherine Lynch's Traveller Country 'n Irish character 'Singing Bernie Walsh', with Brian Dowling schmaltzing it up in sidekick mode, the half hour comedy entertainment show gleefully uses and usurps the clichéd daytime tropes; the hearty sofa-bound celebrity interviews, the health advice, cookery and obscure craft demos, showbiz gossip, fitness and 'zany' charity appeals.all held together by frantic 'Menu-Update' graphics and singeingly sunny banter ...it's a Googlesack of riotous comic material.

Unlike traditional Breakfast TV Shows Katherine Lynch's Big Fat Breakfast Show features a full studio audience and guests appearing in the first season include Kerry Katona, David Gest, Denise Welch, Big Fat Gypsy Wedding Dressmaker Thelma Madine, Jodie Marsh, Aidan Power, Hardy Bucks Lead Man Martin 'Eddie Durkan' Maloney, Amy Childs and Gemma Collins from The Only Way Is Essex as well as Daytime Stalwarts Chef Kevin Dundon, wine expert Tom Doorley, Interiors Expert Neville Knott and Beauty Expert Triona 'Party' McCarthy.

Katherine Lynch's Big Fat Breakfast Show show follows on the successes of Katherine Lynch's Wonderwomen, Single Ladies and Wagons Den.
