The Wright Stuff is a popular chat show broadcast every weekday morning at 9.15 by Channel Five and is presented by Matthew Wright.
The aim of the programme is to create the country’s brightest daytime show and to that end the subjects tend to be light-hearted although there is a lot of input from viewers who can call in or email their views and opinions.
However, that’s not to say that The Wright Stuff is all about fluff as former national celebrity journalist Matthew has interviewed Tony Blair and right-wing British National Party supporters among many others in some fairly gritty questioning sessions.
For every show there is usually a celebrity or two to help co-present it with other famous people also calling in, such as Katie Price, also known as the model Jordan, who put her views across when they were discussing her and a controversial allegation.
The guests' job is to review topical and controversial stories from the day’s newspapers and offer an opinion – they also analyse the major events of the day.
This often means that the producers opt for those stories which will generate the biggest reaction from viewers though, it has to be said, that some of the most controversial topics often elicit some of the most reasoned and intelligent responses.
The Wright Stuff was launched in 2000 and was broadcast first from Norwich, though after a couple of moves it is currently broadcast from the third floor of Whiteley's Shopping Centre in Bayswater, London.
Unusually for a show like this – it's more like a radio debating programme than a TV one – it is broadcast in front of a live audience.
This also gives an opportunity for a crew member to go into the audience and ask for their views and opinions on the topic being discussed.
The shows features regular faces among its presenters but they also invite a third guest who could come from journalism, comedy, politics or entertainment.
