New Top Gear host Chris Evans is bringing back his old show TFI Friday for a new series after a successful anniversary special earlier this month.
Evans, who also hosts the breakfast show on Radio 2, told fans the show was “coming back for a short but perfectly formed run of eight shows pre-Christmas”.
The broadcaster, recently named as Jeremy Clarkson's successor on Top Gear, scored a huge hit in the 1990s with the original TFI Friday.
The show, which included segments such as Ugly Bloke and Freak or Unique?, returned to Channel 4 for a live special with guests including Evans's old sidekick Will Macdonald.
