It has been reported that the BBC are planning a major new Saturday night entertainment show which will be hosted by comedian Michael McIntyre.

The Sun reports that Mac Factor has been commissioned in a bid to match the success of the 1990s’ hit Noel’s House Party, with Noel Edmonds.

It is claimed the show will be a mixture of McIntyre’s stand-up , celebrity guests and games.

A source is quoted as saying “The Beeb have had a nightmare finding something decent to air on Saturday nights when The Voice and Strictly Come Dancing aren't on.

"Everyone still harks back to the glory days of Noel Edmonds and wishes they could recapture some of that spirit."
