Paul Whitehouse is reviving the character of DJ Mike ‘Smashie’ Smash for a Christmas special on Gold.
Smashie and Nicey, played by Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield, first appeared on Harry Enfield’s Television Programme in the 1990s, parodying cheesy radio DJs.
Paul Whitehouse is now bringing Smashie back for a two-part Christmas special called Smashie’s Xmastastic Playlist.
Gold says: “Yes, the UK’s most fantabulous DJ and one half of everyone’s favourite fab radio duo, Mike Smash (Paul Whitehouse) takes time out from his charity work and returns to TV screens this Christmas with his ding-dong-merrily-on-high-iest festive favourite tunes. Smashie’s Xmastastic Playlist is a brand new UKTV Original that will air across two days in December 2017. Simulcast between Gold and Smash’s new broadcasting home Radio Hush, this two-part special will feature the nation’s best-loved Christmas classics, alongside some lesser known oddities from Smashie’s sonic stocking – and all will be introduced by the former Radio Fab FM DJ in his unique style.”
