Music channel MTV are bringing phenomenally successful show TOTAL REQUEST LIVE (TRL) to their British audiences.

The American version of the programme - hosted by VJ CARSON DALY - is based at a studio in Times Square, New York, where the public can see celebrity guests make their appearances.

However, the British version will be based at MTV's headquarters in Camden, north London and will be filmed before a live audience.

Newcomer Dave Berry will helm the show and encourage his high-profile guests to perform crazy skits with fans.

MTV's UK and Ireland managing director MICHIEL BAKKER says, "TRL is quite simply the biggest show that we have ever launched at MTV UK."
