The Geek Detectives?

If the rumours on the web today are to be believed, the line-up for 2010’s Big Fat Quiz of The Year has been confirmed.  And after a couple of non-Fielding years, it sounds like he’s back!

According to various sources, Noel Fielding will be partnering up with another TVO favourite, Richard Ayoade for Channel 4’s annual quiz show this year.  The pair were last seen together at various Bunny and the Bull related events, such as the BFI screening above.

As most of you will know, Fielding was one of the show’s most popular guests as half of the Goth detectives with Russell Brand in 2006 and 2007, while Ayoade appeared on the panel in The Big Fat Anniversary Quiz.

Both performers have worked together on a number of projects, including The Mighty Boosh, IT Crowd, Bunny & The Bull and Kasabian’s Vlad the Impaler promo, so it’ll be nicely fitting to see them partner up for BFQOTY.

The full team listing is Fielding/Ayoade, Alan Carr/Michael McIntyre, and Jonathan Ross/Charlotte Church.  At TVO Towers we can’t wait!
