You've Been Framed
You've Been Framed (or New You've Been Framed nowadays) is the name of a British television show, produced by Granada for ITV where viewers send in humorous home videos (often with somebody suffering pain e.g. running into a tree).
During the show, the video clips are played and the people who sent them in receive £250. Before the advert break a 'What Happens Next' competition is played, where the viewers have to guess what happens after a clip is frozen. The answer is revealed after the break.
The show has had 4 hosts during its lifetime (with Richard Madeley hosting the original pilot show):
- Jeremy Beadle, host from 1990 to 1997
- Lisa Riley , host from 1998 to 2002
- Jonathan Wilkes , host in 2003
- Harry Hill, host from 2004
The format has been tweaked in recent years. While the programme was presented by Jonathan Wilkes the studio audience voted for which clip was the best of the night at the end of the show, and the person who sent in the winning clip took home £1000. A segment was also introduced showcasing clips which had obviously been faked.
Now the show is presented by Harry Hill, there is no longer a studio set. Harry provides commentary on the clips via voiceover.
