Clapham online sensation bags ITV series

AN INTERNET celebrity from Clapham has landed his own prime time dating show.

Dapper Laughs, the comedian whose persona revolves around being a self-styled ‘pulling magnet’, will offer dating tips to the public in new ITV2 sketch show On The Pull.

Online sensation Dapper Laughs, whose real name is Daniel O’Reilly, already has a cult following of over a million fans on Facebook, 300k Twitter followers, a top ten comedy track on iTunes, and half a million followers on Vine.

His tongue-in-cheek six-second videos posted on social media show him approaching women and hanging out with celebrities including Danny Dyer.

Kate Maddigan, ITV’s commissioning editor for comedy and entertainment, said: “Dapper Laughs is brilliant new talent so I’m excited to bring him and his risqué brand of humour to ITV2.

“We plan to take what he’s been doing so successfully on Vine and Facebook and supersize it, so I’m sure his original fans and many new ones will love to see his take on how to ‘pull’”

Dapper Laughs said, “I can’t wait to bring my brand of comedy to the ITV2 viewers, who says you can’t sleep your way to the top.”
