Would I Lie to You? (often abbreviated to WILTY) is a comedy panel game made by Zeppotron for BBC One. It was first broadcast on 16 June 2007.
The show was presented by Angus Deayton in 2007 and 2008, and by Rob Bry...展开don (who had appeared as a guest panellist in the second series) from 2009 onwards. The team captains are comedians David Mitchell and Lee Mack.
For each show, two celebrity guests join each of the team captains. The two teams then compete with each player revealing unusual facts and embarrassing personal tales for the consideration of the opposing team. Some of these are true; some are not, and panellists’ task is to decide which is which.
The first series was recorded at The Fountain Studios in Wembley during March and April 2007, and aired at 21:55 between 16 June and 28 July 2007 on BBC One (missing a week for coverage of the Concert for Diana memorial event).
Filming for the second series took place between 15 November and 18 December 2007. The second series was filmed at BBC TV Centre in West London, as the Fountain Studios were being used for The X Factor at the time. The second series aired at 21:00 between 11 July 2008 and 29 August 2008 on BBC One, and contained eight shows, an increase of two from series one. A compilation episode featuring some previously unaired material was aired on 19 September 2008 at 21:30 on BBC One.
Filming of a third series of eight episodes took place at Pinewood Studios during March and April 2009, and was broadcast between 10 August 2009 and 29 September 2009 on BBC One at 22:35. A compilation episode was also recorded. The airdate was 17 December 2009, due to an addition of Match of the Day to the BBC One schedule.
Filming of a fourth series of eight episodes took place at Pinewood Studios again during April and May 2010, and was broadcast between 23 July 2010 and 10 September 2010 on BBC One at 22:35. The compilation episode aired on 17 September 2010.
The fifth series was filmed during March 2011 at Pinewood Studios. It started airing from 9 September at 21:30.
The sixth series of the show was recorded in March 2012 and began its broadcast on 13 April 2012. This series will air in a pre-watershed slot, at 20:30, for the first time.
