A new panel show which promises to give women an insight into the male mind has been filmed in Romford.
Loose Lads, shot at Kosho nightclub, South Street, is an interactive talk show that looks at the latest news stories with a pinch of “witty banter” and opinion.
An entire series has been commissioned by Essex TV and the first show, comprising of guest panellists rapper Digit Davis, Josh Height and Paul Manners from Britain’s Got Talent, is available to watch online.
Father of five Billy Kabanda, 33, of Romford has secured a spot as a regular contributor and said the programme is a show “by lads for the people”.
“It’s for everyone, anywhere, anytime,” he said.
“Men can relate to the things being said and women can get a window into the world of men”.
From the Olympics and Big Brother to tackling “deeper issues”, the show will cover a range of topics in a candid manner.
Mr Kabanda said he wanted to air a “guy’s perspective” and said it meant a lot to be on the show as it gave him a chance to represent.
“We are like a male version of Loose Women,” he added.
“When that show started off it was very raunchy, but as it has gone on it has been watered down.
“We want to share the real issues for men.
“You know when you meet up with the lads and have a few pints, you have banter, but then someone will ask a really deep question and it gets you thinking.”
The first two episodes were filmed in one big session – thanks to the “magic of editing” and Mr Kabanda said that his co-panellists and CEO of Essex TV, Jay Connor, was actually the one who came up with the format for the show.
“His head is full of ideas, he came up with this one and through why not give it a try”, said Mr Kabanda.
“He has worked really hard on it and really pushed it forward and we are on the hunt for more sponsorship.”
