It’s been revealed today that classic panel game Through the Keyhole is to make a comeback to ITV later this year, and will feature comedian Keith Lemon – whose real name is Leigh Francis – taking a tour of houses owned by celebrities and offering up clues to the identity of the famous homeowner.

The show first became a hit when it aired on ITV in 1987 – it ended its run in 1995 but returned to telly on Sky for two special editions – with Sir David Frost hosting and chef Lloyd Grossman overseeing the tours of the houses.

At the start of each show, Frost introduced the panel of three celebrities, with the catchphrase “And what a panel they are….” before listing each celeb’s major achievements…

Grossman would then go around the mystery house, ending his tour with the phrase, “Who would live in a house like this?”

As mentioned, Keith – who also presents ITV2 show, Celebrity Juice – will be the new Lloyd, but it hasn’t as yet been revealed who’ll host the panel in the studio.

The Mirror quotes an ITV insider as saying, “Keith is the perfect ¬candidate to reinvigorate the show.

“He will bring this old classic right up to date and celebrities are currently being hunted to take part.

“But there will be a twist and they will have the shock of their lives when Keith reveals their homes in the studio.”

Here’s a reminder of the original show…
