Bill Bailey may have won Strictly Come Dancing but he'd like nothing better than a return to Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

The hit music-themed panel show ran from 1996 to 2015, with Bailey starring as a team captain for six years opposite fellow comic Phil Jupitus.

Bailey, who was recently seen dancing to success in the BBC’s hit dance programme, told The Mirror he was well up for a Buzzcocks reboot.

"I don’t think there is a show that’s similar now," he said. "I don’t think there is anything that’s replaced it. It’s not like they’ve given it a reboot and changed the format."

He added that the show’s format wasn't unkind, but could be "a bit edgy".

Never Mind the Buzzcocks was noted and known for its dry, sarcastic humour and scathing, provocative attacks on other people and objects.

"Sometimes people would get a little bit riled up, but, I mean, that was the nature of the show," he said

"It was some of the best fun I've ever had on television. I mean, those records would go on for two hours sometimes.

"What you ended up on the screen was just a fraction of the mayhem that was actually going on. They were great fun. And people would sort of get nervous.

"Just take it in good stead. That's what we used to say to them. Just come on the show and just be yourself, and just maybe mention some kind of shenanigans you got up to.

"That's it, that's all you need to do, and then look like you're enjoying yourself. Don't get too cross."
