The second series will be preceded by a one-off special, The John Bishop End of Year Show, an irreverent look back at 2022 airing Thursday, 29 December.

John said: “I was delighted with the response to the first series. It was great to give viewers a Saturday night show that offered an entertaining mix of comedy, interesting guests and topical discussion.

“I can’t wait to do another series. And before that, I’m really looking forward to my end of year show – but its been such a quiet year, I don’t know what I will talk about..!”

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning, ITV added: “We are thrilled to have John back at the helm bringing his energy to the jam-packed bumper schedule on Saturday nights on ITV. With his comedic brilliance and captivating style, I can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve.”
