Rob Brydon in charge of BBC1’s The Guess List

Rob Brydon is set to host a new Saturday night quiz show for BBC1 called The Guess List.

The six-part series sees contestants compete for a prize that has been specially selected for them, with help provided by famous faces from the worlds of TV, film, music and sport.

The Would I Lie To You? host will also be filming a sequel to 2010’s The Trip, his well-received series with Steve Coogan, which saw the pair embark on a gastronomic tour of northern England during which they traded banter and impressions of everyone from Richard Gere to Michael Caine.

This time, Rob and Steve will travel around Italy in a Mini Cooper, following in the footsteps of Romantic poets Shelley and Byron.

The Guess List launches on BBC1 later this year.
