Kirstie Allsopp will feature as a barmaid for Chris Evans' live special of 'TFI Friday'.

The 'Location Location Location' star - who is just as well known for her presenting skills as she is for her feminine dresses and rider boots - is set to feature as a bartender on the one-off the comeback of the Channel 4 show to mark the it's 20th anniversary.

Speaking of his excitement at bringing back the show, Chris told the Daily Mail newspaper: "I can't believe it's been almost 20 years since the first episode of TFI."

The flame-haired presenter had revealed this year that the much-loved cult show of the 90s was coming back to our living rooms but for one night only.

He said at the time: "The truth is, TFI was a show I came to love and loathe in equal measure. A show I both feared and looked forward to every Friday afternoon".

The program - which ran for four years - was graced with some of the biggest A-listers in the world from Paul McCartney and David Bowie to Jennifer Lopez and Dame Helen Mirren.

The Radio 2 DJ hosted the first five series, while the sixth and final was fronted by a number of celebrity guests including the Spice Girls, Davina McCall and Elton John.

Meanwhile, former 'Top Gear 'host Jeremy Clarkson is also set to make his return to television after being axed from the BBC motoring show earlier this year on 'TFI'.
