Leila Hoffman features as Gran in That Hidden Camera Family on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD tonight at 6:30pm.

That Hidden Camera Family is Sky 1 HD’s fresh take on the hidden camera format centring around a mischievous family who play tricks on unsuspecting members of the public. The family is led by Mum and Dad who despite, being responsible parents, can’t resist winding up the public.

Their son Jack, the son, has a nasty habit of getting himself trapped in all sorts of unlikely places, from a recycling bin and vending machine to post box and a grab machine. He relies on the kindness of strangers to help him out and carry out his ridiculous requests. Katy and Emma, the daughters enlist the general public to help them out with all sorts of bizarre school projects taking learning to a whole new level.

Living with Mum, Dad and the children is their beloved Gran. Aged 86 (as she continually reminds the public) she is the most experienced and accomplished prankster of the family. Gran is a man eater who rides a mobility scooter with a mind of its own and has a rather unique hearing aid.

As well as hitting the streets to play their jokes, the family love to spend quality time together. This usually involves inviting over unsuspecting pizza deliverymen, couriers and taxi drivers to their house and throwing them into all sorts of unusual scenarios.
