Conrad Black to appear on 'Have I Got News For You'
Monday 15 October 2012
Former media mogul Conrad Black is to be a guest panellist on satirical BBC show Have I Got News For You.
Black, who was released from a US jail earlier this year after serving time for fraud, will be on the show a week on Friday.
He is likely to face merciless ribbing from Private Eye editor Ian Hislop and Paul Merton on the show with the two regular faces rarely sparing their guests from mockery.
Black, former proprietor of the Daily Telegraph and a number of other world newspapers, was imprisoned for three years for defrauding investors.
The other guest in the programme will be broadcaster Victoria Coren, with Alexander Armstrong chairing the show once more.
