Following the recent 90-minute special of TFI Friday, Channel 4 has commissioned a new eight-episode series hosted by Chris Evans.

The special attracted 4.9m viewers and was the most talked about programme of the week with over 90,000 tweets mentioning the show.

Chris Evans commented, “Oh my goodness, are we really going to get to do this again? Looks like it – and leading into Christmas too. I might actually spontaneously explode on live television due to over excited-ness.‎ Does that still count as unpredictable cos I’ve said it now?”

Jay Hunt, Channel 4’s Creative Officer said; “Chris is the best of the best of live broadcasters and I never doubted for a moment that this TFI would live up to expectations. Confirming a series was a no brainer”.

TFI Friday will once again return to the Friday night slot, with top celebrity guests, leading music acts and a variety of colourful segments.

TFI Friday will return to Channel 4 this autumn.
