Never Mind the Buzzcocks

Series 26 - Episode 13

Radio Times
Review by:
Jack Seale

The Buzzcocks producers atone slightly for BBC2’s achingly silly decision to cancel Shooting Stars: Bob Mortimer is your host for the seasonal edition of this still-funny music quiz. You can expect… actually, I’ve no idea what you can expect from Mortimer, that’s why he’s such a good pick. Captains Phill Jupitus and Noel Fielding, are joined by drum ’n’ bass producer DJ Fresh, Melanie C from the Spice Girls, Him & Her star Russell Tovey and comedian Joey Page.
