He said: “I’m so excited to try and cheer up the nation in this extraordinary time from my own home.

“I have limited resources – a camera, the internet and my wife. We could either make porn, or a show for ITV2. We decided on the latter – although both would make people laugh.”

Paul Mortimer, head of digital channels at ITV, said: “Home Alone With Joel Dommett is the perfect show to put a smile on the faces of ITV2 viewers, many of whom are holed up indoors.

“Joel’s joyous brand of comedy, fun and games will reflect the uplifting, often hilarious things Britain is getting up to to pass the time on lockdown.”

Home Alone With Joel Dommett will start on ITV 2 at 10pm on April 19.
