Michael McIntyre's Big Show set for third series
Michael McIntyre's 'Big Show' has been commissioned for a third series.
The 40-year-old comedian has been dished out a mega-money contract for another run of his popular comedic programme after more than six million viewers tuned in to watch the first episode of the its current series, which aired on Saturday (19.11.16).
He said: "Making the 'Big Show' has been the most fun I've had on TV.
"There are so many surprises and performances to come in the current series and I couldn't be more thrilled and excited to be making a third series next year."
And the star - who originally brought the show to screens for a one-off Christmas special in 2015 - has promised fans they won't be disappointed with the current batch of episodes as the second series is jam packed with unexpected surprises.
He explained: "The show has naturally evolved from the first series and now everything has gone up a notch. We have lots of entertainment items running through the show, audience surprises, Unexpected Star, Send To All, stand up and much more."
This weekend's episode will see Michael bring back his famous celebrity text game Send To All, which will see the host stealing 'Pointless' presenter Alexander Armstrong's phone and firing off awkward and rude messages to his contacts.
Michael has high hopes for his latest work but is slightly concerned, as his previous programme 'Michael McIntrye's Chat Show' aired for just one series over nine months in 2015 and was axed on his terms after he felt "uncomfortable" with the format.
'Big Show' will return to screens on Saturday (26.11.16) at 8:10pm on BBC one as Michael is joined by his guests Alexander, Russell Howard and OneRepublic.
