Get a Grip is a television series shown on ITV in the United Kingdom. It aired on Wednesday nights in April/May 2007 and was hosted by Ben Elton and Alexa Chung.

The programme was made by Phil McIntyre Productions and Big Bear Films.

ITV dropped Get a Grip from its 10pm slot as it was not performing well in terms of ratings. The programme was moved to Monday nights after midnight for the rest of the series.

The show received an averaged audience of around 1.5 million, usually being beaten by rival channels BBC One and Channel 4.[1]
