Jack Whitehall and his dad Michael are bringing their BBC2 talk show 'Backchat' to London next month for a one-off live performance.

The father-son duo will be taking to the stage at New Wimbledon Theatre on November 20 to raise money for charities The Oak Centre for Children and Young People at The Royal Marsden Hospital and Antony Nolan. 

'"Backchat" started as a live show so we are going back to our roots,' Michael tells Time Out.

The live stage show will feature a yet-to-be-announced line-up of celebrity guests, who he says 'will be very special.' Former 'Backchat' guests include James Corden, Miranda Hart, Danny Dyer, Judy Murray and Jeremy Paxman, so keep your expectations high.

This live show could be your only chance to see the chat show for a while, as Michael also tells us production on the BBC2 series is 'currently on hold due to Jack's many commitments.' 

'I'm really looking forward to doing Backchat Live at The Wimbledon Theatre as I'm constantly amazed by the courage, bravery and good humour of the young patients I meet on my visits to The Oak Centre for Children and Young People, many of whom are also helped by The Anthony Nolan Trust,' adds Jack. 

Tickets for the live charity chat show are currently on sale
