David Walliams could front a new BBC peak-time comedy panel show which will test celebrities' patriotic knowledge.

The comedian is working on a pilot of the show - called I Love My Country - in which he will team up with Frank Skinner and Greg Davies.

It is based on a show which has already proved to be a hit in the Netherlands, created by TV gameshow guru John De Mol.

Britain's Got Talent judge David has previously hosted Sky 1's panel show Wall Of Fame.

The pilot programme is not due for broadcast but the series is being considered for BBC One.

The BBC's executive editor for entertainment commissioning, Alan Tyler, said: "David, Frank and Greg are three of the UK's biggest comedy talents. Bringing them together on one show is a really exciting prospect."
