'Facejacker' character Terry Tibbs - played by comedian Kayvan Novak - has landed his own Channel 4 talk show
'Facejacker' character Terry Tibbs has landed his own talk show.
The cockney car salesman - played by the show's creator, Kayvan Novak - will host a comedy chat show on Channel 4 this summer.
The 33-year-old comedian told The Sun newspaper: "We're doing a Terry Tibbs chat show for Channel 4, which goes out in August. It's a one-off, then we'll see.
"We're working on a 'Facejacker' movie and a sitcom spin-off of one character. I'd like to go down the Eddie Murphy route with a multi-character movie."
'Facejacker' is a popular comedy TV series which features Kayvan making a series of prank calls in a host of different disguises. It was previously known as 'Fonejacker' and ran from 2006-2008 on E4. The second series of the new improved 'Facejacker' concluded on Channel 4 in May 2012.
Kayvan disguises himself with a prosthetic mask and glasses to play balding cockney geezer Terry Tibbs, who is one of the show's most popular characters. His catchphrases include "talk to me" and "Thank you and goodnight - much love".
The upcoming chat show is likely to be Terry's personal take on 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'. The flashy car dealer will be talking to a celebrities, musicians and members of the public who need him to mediate their problems.
