The BBC has ordered a one-off Dame Edna Everage special that will take pace aboard Dame Edna’s “luxury yacht.” 


Filmed in front of an audience, Dame Edna will host an exclusive evening with celebrity chat and music from her yacht, staffed by some familiar faces.


Kate Philips, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning, said: "There’s nothing like a Dame Edna and I can’t wait for this unforgettable one off special to hit our screens. With a whole host of celebrities bravely stepping on board to join the First Lady of Oz we’re all in for an absolute treat."

Rachel Ashdown, BBC Commissioning Editor, said: "Over the past 50 years Dame Edna has got to grips with the world’s biggest stars and I am looking forward to seeing her welcome the current generation of celebrities to her sofa."

Commissioned by Kate Phillips, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning. The Dame Edna Show (w/t) is produced by Studio 1. The Executive Producer is Claudia Rosencrantz, Dame Edna’s long-time Producer. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Rachel Ashdown.

The Dame Edna Show (w/t) will air on later this year on BBC One.
