'Russell Howard's Good News' will return this April, producers have confirmed
'Russell Howard's Good News' will return this April.
The new series of the BBC Three comedy - which sees the 32-year-old star give his comical take on the news of the past week - is to air on Thursday, April 25, after becoming such a hit for the channel since its first airing in October 2009.
The 'Russell Howard's Good News' producers revealed: "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."
One of the main features of the show sees Russell joined by a mystery guest who has featured in the news that week and he is tasked with guessing who they are.
But this feature did not go according to plan at one point in 2011 when Russell broke his hand on set while trying to do press-ups on a wonky stool. He was rushed to A&E following the incident and it was confirmed he had broken his hand.
Shortly afterwards, series producer Mark Iddon joked on Twitter: "It's his left hand, so, you know... Silver lining. (sic)"
