Harry Hill is to host a brand new late-night comedy show.

The "You've Been Framed" star will be back on Channel 4 with a new programme - which is as yet unnamed - featuring some of the UK's best comics alongside the presenter's unique blend of chaos and hilarity.

Opening up on his excitement about the project, he said: "Channel 4 gave me my first break all those years ago - it'll be great to bring some of my favourite new comics to a wider audience! Stouffer the cat's thrilled too."

The show - which has been commissioned for six episodes - will air at 11pm each week, and will be filmed just days before its transmission.

Harry, 54, will also act as curator for the series, handpicking some of his favourite established acts alongside the rising stars of the comedy circuit.
