Channel 4 today confirmed it's bringing back Chris Evans' classic 1990s series TFI Friday in the autumn.
TFI Friday returned for a one-off special earlier in June and Channel 4 says its peak audience of 4.2 million viewers easily beat its main competitors.
Chris Evans said: “Oh my goodness, are we really going to get to do this again? Looks like it - and leading into Christmas too. I might actually spontaneously explode on live television due to over- excitedness. Does that still count as unpredictable cos I've said it now?”
Jay Hunt, Channel 4’s Creative Officer, said; “Chris is the best of the best of live broadcasters and I never doubted for a moment that this TFI would live up to expectations. Confirming a series was a no brainer”.
The show which mixes live music with celebrity guest interviews and madcap features was a big hit in the Nineties. The one-off special was meant to commemorate its 20th anniversary, however it was only its 19th anniversary and it now appears the special was a ploy by Channel 4 to test the public's appetite for a new series.
TFI Friday will return for eight episodes.
