Movie star Scarlett Johansson will realise a British TV wish next year (06) when she appears as a guest on one of her favourite shows, THE KUMARS AT NO 42.

The LOST IN TRANSLATION star watches the show whenever she's in England and checks it out on the BBC America network when she's at home in the US.

Her interest in appearing on the BBC show seems to have kept the spoof chat show on the air for one more season after initial reports the programme was to end.

Actor Hugh Jackman, another fan, is also said to be among the guests appearing on what is likely to be the show's last season.
