Given the speed of the flow of information around the internet, many of you will already know quite a lot about the new series of Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
You’ll probably know that it returns to our screens on Monday 24th September at 10pm on BBC2; you’ll already be aware that Noel Fielding and Phill Jupitus are reprising their roles as team captains. Indeed, you may even know who’s appearing in episode 1 (Kathy Burke as host, with Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus and gold medalist Greg Rutherford on Noel’s team; Sarah Millican and N Dubz’ Faser on Phill’s team). But we may be able to let you in on a wee bit more information that you may not know…
We won’t spill all the beans because, let’s be honest, it’s nice to have a few happy surprises to cheer up a Monday evening. But prepare yourself for: an athletic introduction, a fascinating and frankly bizarre line-up round, Noel’s extensive knowledge of the Cyrus family, Mark Hoppus’s brilliantly dry sense of humour, and Kathy Burke’s wonderful honesty about the people she doesn’t care very much for. We hope it all makes it into the final cut!
