Fans loved Richard and Judy's new series...

Richard and Judy returned to our screens on Monday with a brand new special - and fans loved it!

Their C4 series Keep Reading and Carry On was inspired by their book club, launched in 2010.

Speaking about the new show, Judy said, "Books can transport you to incredible places from the comfort of your sofa.

"So there is no better time to share our top picks for lockdown reads and hear from viewers, celebrities and authors about the books that have helped them whilst staying at home."

And Richard added, "It is no secret that Judy and I are avid readers and we are excited to return to C4 to share what we love with viewers."

The first episode saw the couple interviewing author Adam Kay, who wrote the book This Is Going to Hurt.

The bestselling book is a collection of diary entries written by Adam during his medical training as a Junior Doctor.
