Pop culture panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks is to return to television screens on Sky.

An eight-part run and a Christmas special of the erstwhile BBC comedy show will be hosted by comedian Greg Davies.

"I have always loved Never Mind the Buzzcocks and am thrilled to be the new host on Sky," says Davies.

"We have brilliant comedic talent on the team and plenty of exciting musical guests will be joining us.

"All that being said, I'm so sure that no one reads these press quotes in their entirety that I’m going to finish by listing types of bread: rye, sourdough, sliced white. Oh, and cob."

Noel Fielding will return to the programme as a team captain, while This Country's Daisy May Cooper will head up the opposing team.

Stand-up comedian Jamali Maddix will feature as a regular guest on the Sky Originals programme, which will also be available on streaming service Now.

The original BBC Two series was axed in 2015 after almost two decades on television.

Previous hosts included Rhod Gilbert, Simon Amstell and Mark Lamarr, while team captains on the programme included Phil Jupitus, the late Sean Hughes and Fielding.

The new series will air in the autumn and will be produced by Talkback, the company behind the original version of the show.
