Simon Mayo to host new Blockbusters


Radio presenter Simon Mayo is set to host a re-vamped series of the television quiz show Blockbusters.

The late Bob Holness hosted the show from 1983 to 1993 and the double entendre contestant request "Can I have a P please, Bob?" was made famous.

The show will continue with the hexagonal board game but contestants will be over 18 and it will be on at a later time slot.

Mayo told BBC Breakfast: "We want to do a show that Bob would have been proud of".
