Holly mooted for Surprise revival

Surprise, Surprise - ITV bosses are in talks with Holly Willoughby to present a revival of the hit family show.

The original, famously fronted by Cilla Black who sang the theme tune, ran for more than 10 years and featured practical jokes and unsuspecting members of the public in tear-jerking reunions.

It is understood TV executives want to bring the show back for a one-off special and are in discussions with the This Morning host to present it.

Holly will also be appearing on the BBC this year as co-host of the corporation's hotly-tipped new talent contest The Voice UK - seen as a rival to the X Factor.

She was named as presenter last year after it was announced she was stepping down from her role on ITV1's Dancing On Ice.

The original Surprise, Surprise saw Cilla team up with sidekicks including Bob Carolgees, Gordon Burns and Tessa Sanderson.
