TFI Friday confirmed for full series

Channel 4 will air a series of TFI Friday this year, following its successful special earlier this month.

The eight-part series will air in the autumn. The 90-minute special drew a peak audience of 4.2 million viewers.

It also scored the highest share of viewers aged 16-34, with 30% of the demographic tuning in.

Returning host Chris Evans (pictured) confirmed the news on Twitter earlier today (Tuesday, June 23).

TFi Friday is indeed coming back for a short but perfectly formed run of eight shows pre Christmas. Tx dates soon .Plus audience information

Evans said: “Oh my goodness, are we really going to get to do this again? Looks like it – and leading into Christmas too. I might actually spontaneously explode on live television due to over excited-ness.‎ Does that still count as unpredictable cos I’ve said it now?”

Jay Hunt, Channel 4’s creative officer added: “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.”
