Chris Evans will host eight episodes of TFI Friday on Channel Four following a one-off special earlier this month striking the right notes with audiences.

The radio DJ will juggle the eight episode run with his obligation as the new host of Top Gear and as the presenter of his daily breakfast show on BBC Radio 2.

Evans announced the news on Twitter, confirming: “TFi Friday is indeed coming back for a short but perfectly formed run of eight shows."

Jay Hunt, Channel 4's creative officer, said: "Chris is the best of the best of live broadcasters and I never doubted for a moment that this TFI would live up to expectations. Confirming a series was a no-brainer."

The show, which ran from 1996 to 2000, will return to screens in November and December.
