Slipknot singer Corey Taylor is to appear on the BBC's QI quiz show

Slipknot singer Corey Taylor will appear on a new episode of the BBC's quiz show, QI.

A photo of the star with new host Sandi Toksvig, Alan Davies and Ross Noble was tweeted by fellow contestant Aisling Bea.

There's no news about when the episode will air.

Stephen Fry stepped down as the programme's host in 2015 after 13 years saying it was "one of the best jobs on television" but it was time to move on.

QI was first broadcast in 2003 and covers topics under one letter per series - it's now up to N.

Stephen Fry was originally hired to be a team captain opposite Alan Davies, but agreed to host the show as a last-minute replacement for Michael Palin.

Sandi Toksvig has previously hosted a chat show on LBC radio and BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz as well as fronting Channel 4's Fifteen To One.

Corey Taylor has been the singer in Slipknot since 1997.

Since then the Iowa band have sold more than 40 million albums and won a Grammy in 2006.
