Dave has ordered a second helping of Big Zuu’s Big Eats.
TV chef and grime artist Big Zuu will return with school friends Tubsey and Hyder as they fire up their trusty food truck to cook for some of entertainment’s biggest names.
The first season was devoured by 16-34’s as they watched Big Zuu prepare mouth-watering, made-to-order dishes for the likes of Jimmy Carr, London Hughes, Josh Widdicombe and Jamali Maddix. Across its premiere run, the series averaged an outstanding 16-34 profile of 55 per cent – one of the strongest ever 16-34 profiles of a UKTV Original on Dave. To date, the show has reached over 2.2m individuals (4+) and over half a million 16-34s (526k).
Now, the network has given the green light to 10 more episodes and two hour-long specials. Not content with just cooking for comics, Season 2 will see Zuu and friends also cook for some of the biggest names in music, sport and television. The two special episodes will include a Music Special and a Comic’s Christmas episode. In Comic’s Christmas, Zuu finally lets Tubsey and Hyder meet some of the comics from series one, all back for a fine festive feast. The second special will see Zuu and the boys cook for some of the biggest names in music, including Loyle Carner, JME and Julie Adenuga as they dish up their dream Christmas meals.
Big Zuu said: “I’m so happy we’re able to bring back Big Eats for a series two. I feel like the first season was received so well and we managed to build a cult following of people who really loved all the different aspects of the programme. You can expect the same jokes and amazing food on series two just bigger and better in every way. Me, Tubsey and Hyder can’t wait to start filming!”
Big Zuu’s Big Eats Season 2 will air on Dave in 2021, the two specials will air later this year. Season 1 is currently on UKTV Play.
