A source said: "This will be the most exhausting thing Graham has ever done.

"Seven hours of live telly is no mean feat so Graham is booking people he knows will lift his spirits.

"There will be all the usual banter and silly clips and there will be some big set pieces too, which are being thrashed out now."

The project follows the marathon BBC Radio 1 broadcast by Chris Moyles and Dave Vitty in 2011, when they remained on air for over 50 hours.

David Walliams also completed a 24-hour quiz show marathon in 2011.
