Stephen Mulhern is to host a new version of 'Catchphrase'.
The classic gameshow - which was originally hosted by Roy Walker - is being brought back by ITV2 and the channel have signed up the 'Britain's Got More Talent' presenter to host it.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Stephen is over the moon that he is going to front the revival of such an iconic show. He feels he has worked his apprenticeship at ITV2 and has been rewarded with a fantastic opportunity. He can't wait to get started. He's really excited about it and has been watching old reruns.
"I'm sure he'll come up with some of his own catchphrases, although 'Say what you see' may slip in there now and then."
In the original show two contestants, one male and the other female, would have to identify the familiar phrase represented by a piece of animation accompanied by background music.
The show's mascot, a golden robot called Mr Chips' appeared in many of the animations and Roy was famed for his own catchphrases including "Say what you see".
