TFI Friday to return for 8-episode series

TFI Friday will return for an 8-episode series.

Hosted by Chris Evans, Channel 4 has confirmed the comeback for the show, which recently enjoyed a one-off special.

The new episodes will air later this year.

TFI Friday ran for six series from 1996 to 2000 on Channel 4. The first five series were hosted by Evans, and the sixth by a series of guest presenters.

Earlier this month, a TFI Friday live special aired on Channel 4 as part of a weekend of ’90s-themed programming. The episode attracted over three million viewers.

After the success of the episode, Evans was confirmed as the main host of a revamped Top Gear, signing a three-year deal to replace Jeremy Clarkson on the BBC Show.

Evans later confirmed that he was quitting The One Show so he can concentrate on preparing for Top Gear.

He will continue to host the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show.
