Radio’s Pat Sharp tips ‘brilliant’ pal Mark Wright to front rebooted Fun House

Pat Sharp has addressed the possibility of Fun House ever returning to our screens.

The show was a TV staple for 90s kids, kicking off in 1989 and wrapping up just before the new millennium, presented by Pat and twins Melanie and Martina Grant.

But Pat reckons if it does ever make a modern comeback, it should adopt a different formula to the original.

"I think it shouldn't be the same," he told Daily Star readers in a Facebook Live, "it should have a different host, it would be strange if I was doing it.

"Unless of course it was a grown-up version, maybe with celebrities, like celebs of today could come on who always wanted to come on when they were kids…and then myself and the twins could be the hosts."

He added: "It's always been in the back of people's minds to bring it back in some shape or form."

And Pat knows who he'd have in mind for the presenting gig if a new version ever materialised.

"You would have to have a lot of zest about you, you've got to be very up and excited," he shared.

"I would say that a good presenter would be somebody like Mark Wright. I think he'd be brilliant at it.

"He was a huge fan, along with his sister Jess, when they were younger, they've been good pals on mine for many years.

"They loved Fun House and used to re-enact it around their house with balloon and cushions everywhere.

"So I think Mark would be a great host."

He also floated the idea of creating an immersive Fun House experience for nostalgic adults who watched the show when they were kids in the 90s.

And elsewhere in the chat, Pat gave us his rundown of his top ten 80s hits – with A-ha's Take On Me earning the top spot.

I've met the guys many times," Pat told us, referring to A-Ha's line-up of Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy.

"I was the first person to play that iconic video [for Take On Me]."

Journey, Van Halen and Tom Petty were among the other names to make the list.
