'TFI Friday' is set to return for an anniversary special.
The former host Chris Evans blatantly hinted that the Channel 4 entertainment show - which was on the air from 1996 to 2000 - will be revived for a live 90-minute special in June to mark its 20th anniversary.
Speaking on his BBC Radio 2 breakfast show, Chris said: "If it were to come back live on Channel 4 on June 12 at 9pm, 90 minutes up from an hour. If that were to happen, for example."
The show originally aired on Friday evenings and was hosted by Chris for five series, with the presenter leaving once he discovered that the sixth series would be the final one.
It is no surprise that Chris is keen on reviving the show, after he admitted to Zoe Ball that he would be "completely bang up" for its return.
Speaking last year, he shared: "Channel 4 have asked us to do a TFI Friday 20th anniversary show and/or run next year.
"I was completely bang up for it until I did the maths last week and had to phone them and say it's only 19 years next year, it's actually 20 years the year after. I think they still want to go for it and just hope no one notices."
