E4 has commissioned brand new series The Hangover Games and Channel 4 has re-commissioned How To Lose Weight Well from Little Gem.

In The Hangover Games, presenter Matt Richardson and co-host Ken Cheng will challenge groups of hungover Brits to compete in a set of challenges, based on their antics from the night before, for the chance of winning a cash prize.

The groups will be under the assumption that they are taking part in a documentary about British night life and will be followed by the cameras on a night out. The next morning they are told they taking part in a new game show and can win a cash prize if they can complete a series of games.

Becky Cadman, E4, Factual Entertainment commissioning editor says, “We’re very excited to be working with Little Gem on this anarchic series that is sure to resonate all too well with a party loving E4 viewer and guaranteed to provide some laughs along the way.”

Kate Maddigan, Little Gem executive producer says, “We’ve met the UK’s biggest party animals filming this show and can’t wait to share the laughs, stunts and sometimes shockingly outrageous moments with the E4 audience.”

Channel 4 Features has also commissioned Little Gem for a fourth series of How To Lose Weight Well to return for a four-part series and Summer special.
Dr Xand van Tulleken and café chef Stacie Stewart are joined by Dr Helen Lawal to front the show. The team will ask people to road test some of the most popular and talked about diets and give viewers the lowdown on how these diets perform for them.

The Hangover Games (10×30’) was commissioned by Becky Cadman and Ian Dunkley, Factual Entertainment Commissioning Editors and is executive produced by Kate Maddigan and Ben Gale from Little Gem.

How To Lose Weight Well (5×60’) was commissioned by Vivienne Molokwu for Channel 4 Features and is executive produced by Kurt Seywald and Ben Gale for Little Gem.
