Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment for Sky, Phil Edgar-Jones described Never Mind The Buzzcocks as “one of those truly iconic shows” and said its return is “a buzz and a treat for lovers of tuneless humming everywhere.”

Mark Lamar was the original host of Buzzcocks from 1996 to 2005, with Simon Amstell taking over from a series of guest hosts from 2006 to 2009.

After guest hosts took the reins from 2009 to 2013, Rhod Gilbert went on to host the final series.

Phill Jupitus was one of the team captains for the whole 18 years, competing against Sean Hughes, Bill Bailey and finally Noel Fielding.
