Britain's Got Talent 2011 judge Michael McIntyre is set to return to the BBC later this year with a new show for the broadcaster. The stand up will join BBC One over the festive season for a new one-hour Christmas special of his Comedy Roadshow, featuring comics from around the globe.

The previous series of the show was a huge success for the channel when it aired on Saturday's last year.

Michael said: "Having visited 12 of my favourite cities, I'm thrilled that my Comedy Roadshow is coming home for Christmas. It's such an honour for the show to be on Christmas Day and to be introducing some of the biggest names in comedy to entertain a turkey-filled nation slumped on their sofas!"

Mark Linsey, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC, added: "Who better to bring some Christmas cheer to BBC One viewers than Michael. He is such a favourite with our audiences and this show is bound to be a real festive treat."
