Comedian Michael McIntyre is returning to the BBC for a brand new eight-episode series of 'Michael McIntyre's Big Show'.

The Saturday night entertainment show will be recorded in front of a live studio audience at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. It promises more celebrity guests and more laughs with returning segments 'Unexpected Star' and 'Midnight Gameshow'.

Michael McIntyre said: "I'm thrilled at the continued success of the Big Show. Every series gets bigger and better and series four will be our most ambitious yet. There will be new audience surprises as well as returning favourites such as Send to All, the Midnight Gameshow and some extraordinary stunts for the Unexpected Star of the Show. I can't wait!"

It has been commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content and Kate Phillips, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning. 'Michael McIntyre's Big Show' is produced by Hungry McBear Media. The Executive Producers are Dan Baldwin and Claire Horton. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Rachel Ashdown.

Dan Baldwin, Managing Director of Hungry McBear Media said: "We are delighted Michael McIntyre's Big Show is coming back for an extended run. Which means more Midnight Gameshows, more Send To All's and more Unexpected Stars! Plus we have some exceptional new ideas to throw into the mix. Plus Michael has been touring non-stop on his world tour and is on the best form of his life - which is going to lead to an outstanding series for BBC One."

'Michael McIntyre's Big Show' will air on BBC One later this year.
