Never Mind The Buzzcocks is returning to TV screens very soon, and a first look clip has been revealed.

The iconic intro round is back, with the video showing new team captain Daisy May Cooper and singer Anne-Marie performing for Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall.

Unfortunately, their attempt at creating the start of an iconic song doesn't go smoothly, and leaves new host Greg Davies in hysterics.

The episode also features regular guests Jamali Maddix and Nish Kumar, who were on Noel Fielding's team.

Buzzcocks is returning for eight new episodes of 45 minutes, as well as a Christmas special.

The music show initially started in 1996 with Mark Lamarr hosting, and Phill Jupitus and Sean Hughes as team captains. Simon Amstell later took over hosting duties, creating memorable moments such as his spat with Towers Of London singer Donny Tourette, and causing Ordinary Boys singer Preston to walk off the set.

Following his departure, a number of guest presenters took the seat before comedian Rhod Gilbert stood in for its final series before cancellation.

The Great British Bake Off host Noel Fielding joined as a team captain in 2009, replacing Strictly Come Dancing winner Bill Bailey. He's the only star to continue his role on the rebooted show as it moves to Sky.

Director of Arts and Entertainment for Sky, Phil Edgar-Jones, previously described the programme as "one of those truly iconic shows", adding the return was "a buzz and a treat for lovers of tuneless humming everywhere."

Kate Edmunds, Director of Programmes for Talkback, added: "We're over the moon that Sky have made the very wise decision to reboot our beloved Buzzcocks.

"Musicians, stand down, we hear your deafening cries for some long overdue attention."

Never Mind the Buzzcocks' new series will air on Sky and NOW in September.
