He will offer new insights into the hot topics of the day such as the demise of the SCART lead, The Culture Wars, the differences between crabsticks and rhubarb and the origins of Tiramisu.

Guffaw with delight as Harry delves into his back catalogue using his patented ‘Old Bit Randomiser’ for old favourites like ‘Interspecies Tennis’, ‘The time I went up in the Space Shuttle' and ‘When Nan got her hair caught in the knitting’!

Harry said: “I’m looking forward to celebrating my diamond jubilee - 60 years of fun - by going round the country and thanking all the people that have supported me over the years. I’ve had a word with the badgers and they’ve agreed that for one last time the parade’s on!”

Multiple award-winning comedian, presenter and author Harry has been one of the UK’s most respected and inventive entertainers for nearly 30 years.

Starting with his own ingenious comedy series on BBC Two and Channel 4, he went on to create the hit, multi-BAFTA-winning ITV series Harry Hill’s TV Burp, which ran for 10 years. More recently he has created and starred in three series of ITV’s Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule, BBC Two’s Harry Hill’s World of TV, has been the longstanding voice of ITV’s You’ve Been Framed, and is the presenter of Channel 4’s Junior Bake Off.
