Will Chris Evans still be cutting-edge in his Friday-night comeback? Who is plotting murder inside the Vatican? And why does Michael Portillo enjoy his trip on the Orient Express so much? Plus more French zombie action in The Returned and how the major labels hijacked indie music

Following the one-off special from June – seemingly being used as Chris Evans’s public audition for the Top Gear gig – a brand-new series of the Britpop-era entertainment show arrives on our screens. While surely a world away from the buttoned-down cosiness of Evans’s Friday One Shows, it remains to be seen whether a programme hosted by a now-Radio 2 DJ turned Top Gear host will seem as cutting-edge as the 90s-vintage Tfi did.

Tfi Friday will return for an 8-episode series hosted by Chris Evans

Tfi Friday will return for an 8-episode series hosted by Chris Evans.

Channel 4 has confirmed the comeback for the show, which recently enjoyed a one-off special. The new episodes will air later this year.

11,751 people voted in a snap Digital Spy poll after the revival episode, with a massive 71.9% calling for a full-time comeback and just 28.1% wanting the show to be laid to rest.

Tfi Friday ran for six series from 1996 to 2000 on Channel 4. The first five series were hosted by Evans, and the sixth by a series of guest presenters.

In 2005, Evans fronted just six episodes of short-lived spinoff Ofi Sunday on ITV.

Just written last chapter of new book. Had no idea it was going to start with a secret marathon and end with TFi Friday & Top Gear. Onwards!
