Inbetweeners star Greg Davies has landed a pilot for a new BBC comedy series.

Davies, who also appeared in the BBC Three comedy We Are Klang, will host the currently untitled programme, which will feature comedians competing in "ridiculous feats".

According to Chortle, 12 comics will attempt to win the title of "funniest person in the room" by coming up with "outrageous suggestions for their colleagues - which they must also be prepared to do themselves".

Comics confirmed for the show include Stephen K. Amos, Russell Kane, Phil Nicol, Lee Kern, Rob Deering, Charlie Baker, Micky Flanagan, Katherine Ryan, Kirsten O’Brien and Holly Walsh.

Bridget Christie will be Davies's co-host and sidekick on the pilot, which shoots next week.
