CBBC’s historical sketch show comedy Horrible Histories is returning for a sixth series with an all new regular cast, as well as big name guest stars.

TVO favourites Simon Farnaby and Kevin Eldon are amongst them, with Farnaby returning as cult favourite Death.  Also joining the show are Rowan Atkinson, Tom Rosenthal, Ben Miller, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Kathryn Drysdale.

The programme, which has been praised for making childrens’ learning entertaining and being simply hilarious, will also be moving from CBBC to BBC One, as it has proven itself to be a show that’s not just for kids, but loved by all ages.

It involves a full reformation of regular cast members which will now be made up by the likes of Jessica Ransom, Totally Tom, Adam Riches, Naz Osmanoglu, Jalaal Hartley, Louise Ford and Natalie Walter (though previous cast members Lawry Lewin, Sarah Hadland and Jim Howick are set to make an appearance).

Despite being told that the fifth series of Horrible Histories was set to be the last, the first episode of this new series is expected to be aired at the end of January. Visit our friends at Chortle, for more info.
