Give Your Mate a Break
John Leslie (pilot)
Granada for ITV, 29 August 1998 to 7 August 1999 (pilot + 6 episodes in 1 series)
Give Your Mate a Break... Yes, give him a Kit-Kat! Ha ha ha! Sorry.
Described at the time by critics as "Just like Stars in Their Eyes, but without the talent" this was indeed done by the same production team as SITE. People set their (apparently talented) friends up and then (the equally talented) John Leslie/Les Dennis surprises them, they come to the studio to be talented then buggered off back to obscurity.
