Have I Got News for You to return with a "special tribute" to Boris Johnson
The panel show is back earlier than usual and ready to take aim at the soon to be ex-Prime Minister.
Have I Got News for You is back this autumn, the BBC has confirmed; and luckily, fans don't have to wait too long for the batch of brand new episodes, which will begin airing from Friday 2nd September on BBC One.
The new release marks a change for the long-running programme which usually returns later in the year, but this year has been pushed forward to accommodate the BBC's World Cup coverage and avoid clashing with matches.
The premiere date itself is no coincidence, however, as it is Boris Johnson's last evening at 10 Downing Street, which of course will provide plenty of fodder for the show's political satire.
The broadcaster has also revealed the episode's title which takes aim at Britain's soon-to-be former Prime Minister: Have I Got News for Boris – A Special Tribute.
The BBC has teased that the episode will be "a romp through the soon-to-be ex-Prime Minister’s career and his distinctive contribution to British politics, on the eve of his departure."
Comedian Jack Dee will be guest hosting the episode, and of course, Ian Hislop and Paul Merton will be captaining the teams. Journalist Janet Street-Porter and comedian Phil Wang have been confirmed for the panel line-up.
