The King is Dead - The King

Could James Corden be the next president of the USA? Would Caprice make a good chief of police? Would Louis Walsh make a good king? Almost certainly not. A public figure is hypothetically bumped off and a comic interview panel scours the celebrity pool for a top-notch replacement in this comedy panel show. This is not a typical HR department - the last Father Christmas probably didn't get the job based on the ability to smash up a signed picture of the Loose Women with a ski, and the former chief of police almost certainly avoided having his or her feet licked by an alsatian - and this isn't a typical interview panel. Simon Bird, Nick Mohammed and Katy Wix interview Louis Walsh, Jennie Bond and Chloe Madeley to see who is best suited to rule the nation.
