Kate Humble and Jason Byrne have signed up to host new nature-themed game show 'Wild Things', in which pairs of contestants will take part in challenges in return for a cash prize
Kate Humble and are Jason Byrne are to co-host a new game show.
The 45-year-old wildlife presenter and the Irish comedian will be the hosts of nature-themed entertainment programme, 'Wild Things' on Sky1.
The channel's director, Adam MacDonald, said of the show: "'Wild Things' is like nothing we've seen before - a surreal and side splittingly funny concoction of giant woodland creatures, bickering couples and pots of gold. It's a big, daft slice of genius."
The game show - which is set to air on the channel next year - is described as a cross between classics 'It's a Knockout', 'Knightmare' and 'The Really Wild Show'.
It will see couples or pairs of relatives taking part in challenges on a woodland obstacle course in return for a fortune worth of gold coins buried in the "Wild Wood".
However, there is a twist in that one member of each team will become a "Wild Thing" by dressing up in a woodland protection suit designed to look like an animal, which they won't be able to see out of.
Therefore, they will be forced to rely on the directions of their partners to guide them to victory.
