Russell Howard's Good News returns for a brand new series on Thursday 25th April. BBC Three's most successful entertainment series, the show was also recently voted the 'Best Ever BBC Three Show' by Digital Spy users, taking the top spot ahead of Gavin and Stacey, Little Britain and Being Human. Russell Howard's Good News regularly achieves audiences of over a million viewers and is frequently one of the most watched shows on BBC iPlayer.
RUSSELL will once again be offering up an insightful look at global goings-on and find his own uniquely upbeat angle on the news each week, from over 60 international news channels, 140 newspapers from around the world and over a thousand news clips. He and his Good News team will leave no stone left unturned in their pursuit of the strange and sublime stories that have been dominating the media over the past seven days. As always, RUSSELL will be joined by a mystery guest who has featured in the news that week. In the last series our host received a lesson in hairdressing from the UK sheep-shearing champion and threw some memorable moves with the world's top female bodyguard. RUSSELL will also invite members of the public to make the Good News front page themselves with their own weird and wonderful stories in regular feature 'Headliners'.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
