Comedian Rhod Gilbert has been announced as the new full-time presenter of Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

Filming for the show's 28th season will begin later this year and team captains Noel Fielding and Phill Jupitus will return to the hit panel show.

Gilbert joked to the BBC, "After my first Buzzcocks in 2009, I was told I was in with a shout to take over as regular host, and now, just five years later, I got the call. It has all happened so fast."

He continued, "Never Mind the Buzzcocks is one of those rare shows that feels like it belongs on our screens. It's an institution, in a good way. It's a great honour to be asked to take the reins full time and to hang out with Noel and Phill, and I'm equally excited and nervous about adding my name to those who have hosted it in the past."
