3@Three is a topical TV live debate show on ITV. In the programme three topics are discussed each day at three o'clock by three rotating panellists. The first series of ten episodes aired on Monday-Friday between 2 and 13 August 2010. The show was created by Karl Newton and Alison Sharman the duo responsible for Loose Women.

The Panel[edit]

The panel featured on the show comprises Fiona Phillips, Kelvin MacKenzie, Gloria Hunniford, Carol Smillie, Penny Smith, Mark Durden-Smith, Andrea McLean and Jeremy Kyle .[1]

Format[edit]

Each day, the show debates three topical issues with each of the three guest presenters adopting an opinionated point of view on the topic. The studio audience are invited to press a handset to indicate their level of approval for each presenter's stance in the debate which appears as an on-screen graphic with a "sausage" indicating the support for each guest's point of view. A panel of "Skypers" using web cams appear on a video wall providing their points of view to add to that of the panel. Audience members and additional guests are also sometimes invited to add to the debate. The three presenters initially sit at a desk but then move to a more informal sofa area for the next topic and alternate between the two sets.

The show was filmed at The Hospital Club Studios, part of an entertainment complex and club in Covent Garden, in Central London.[citation needed]
