Keith Lemon is set to host his own version of 'Jim'll Fix It' for ITV 1.

Dan Baldwin, head of Talkback Comedy said: "We want to reflect the great wish fulfillment shows from yesteryear but add a very special twist of Lemon."
Speaking about the programme which will air for six weeks in the spring, Keith said: "I'm very excited to be in the living rooms of the lovely ITV1 viewers with me new telly show.
"Solving people's problems and making dreams come true, making me look nice like Cheryl Cole, like when she went out to the troops. She's lovely isn't she? Not as fit as Kelly Brook though! If anyone has ever dreamed of meeting her, let me know - I can hook you up, I know her in real life."
ITV entertainment commissioner Claire Zolkwer added: "We're absolutely thrilled. He's been entertaining the ITV2 audience on 'Celebrity Juice' for six series and his unique brand of naughty but nice is going to bring some colour and fun to family Saturday evenings on ITV1."
Sir Jimmy Savile - who presented 'Jim'll Fix It' from 1975 to 1994 passed away last year at the age of 84.
