Stand-up comic and former Pop World presenter Simon Amstell is to be the new host of Never Mind the Buzzcocks.


Simon, who guest hosted an episode of the BBC TWO show in March, joins as full-time host from the next series which will be on air later this year.


Simon said: "I hope I can be the one exception to the universal, exceptionless rule that when a new host takes over an old show it is a horrible embarrassing disaster. It's going to be great! Woo!"


Bill Bailey and Phill Jupitus continue as team captains, joined each week by celebrity guests showing off their musical know-how and demonstrating why pop music should never be taken too seriously.


Viewers can expect more anarchic and unpredictable music trivia rounds, regular features such as 'intros' and 'identity parade' and, of course, more celebrity ribbing and musical shenanigans.
