My Celebrity Life –

Never Mind the Buzzcocks is officially returning to TV screens in autumn 2021, it has been confirmed.

The iconic music-themed comedy show has been commissioned to make a comeback on Sky and NOW for an eight-episode series, with an additional Christmas special in the works too. Greg Davies has been announced as host, while Daisy May Cooper and the returning Noel Fielding are team captains. Jamali Maddix will be a regular guest on the show.

The original show aired on the BBC between 1996 and 2015, and was first hosted by Mark Lamarr. Simon Amstell subsequently took over in 2006, followed by a number of guest hosts before Rhod Gilbert took the helm for the final series.

Buzzcocks was cancelled in 2015 by the BBC to “create space for new entertainment formats.” Sky will be taking over from BBC as the show’s official broadcaster, while production company Talkback will remain behind the new series.
