Across the five-part series, the trio will be joined by a selection of star guests as they delve into the archives to reveal obscure sitcom secrets.

"Jo Brand's Great Wall of Comedy is an innovative and bold format for Gold and embodies the type of original programming we want for the channel," said the channel's general manager Steve North.

"We are sure the combination of comedy talent headed by Jo, mixed with the fun of a chat show and filled with eye-opening anecdotes from a lineup of comedy stars, will make this a hit with viewers."

UKTV's commissioning editor Sarah Fraser added: "Between them, Jo, Barry and Rebecca have worked with the cream of British comedy talent. Our audiences will lap up the unusual clips, sitcom facts and anecdotes."

Brand's most recent television outing was as a judge on ITV's diving show Splash!, which was picked up for a second series earlier this month.
