Where is TFI Friday 2015 filmed?
Fans of the original show may remember Riverside Studios in Hammersmith being Chris and the gangs regular home. You’d therefore naturally expect this site on the banks of the River Thames to also host the revival. It would be the most fitting location after all.
The problem is, as this Channel 4 trailer below demonstrates, Riverside Studios was demolished in 2014 ready for redevelopment. The precise filming location for this June’s special is currently being kept secret, though it has been confirmed the venue for TFI Friday will be in Central London. The brand new Riverside Studios is due to open in the Autumn of 2017.
Who’ll be appearing on the show?
So far host Chris Evans has confirmed a guest list featuring Oasis and Beady Eye lead singer Liam Gallagher, The Who frontman Roger Daltrey, electro trio Years & Years, drum and bass band Rudimental, The Lightning Seeds’s Ian Broudie, Stone Roses and Primal Scream bassist Mani, Happy Mondays and Black Grape singer Shaun Ryder, Britpop band Blur, plus drummer and son of Ringo Starr, Zak Starkey.
More recently guests include Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw, property expert Kirstie Allsopp, Olympic diver Tom Daley, American actress Amanda Seyfried and former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson.
Oh and if your trying to remember the name of the TFI Friday theme tune, it’s the title song from the 1960’s ITV television series Man in a Suitcase.
