Stand up comedian Dom Joly has announced that he has signed up to present a brand new show for ITV1.
The Trigger Happy TV star will front a new hidden-camera prank series Fool Britannia, which will reportedly be broadcast on Saturday evenings in the autumn before The X Factor, in the slot previously taken by Harry Hill's TV Burp.
Joly, who had a massive hit in the early 00s with Trigger Happy TV, tweeted: "If you are in the UK you are now a legitimate target. It will never be as good as the superb TV Burp but [I] will give it my best."
Since Trigger Happy TV ended in 2003, Joly has presented various programmes including This Is Dom Joly for BBC3, the Trigger Happy clone World Shut Your Mouth for BBC1 and a documentary about Tintin for Channel 4 called Dom Joly and the Black Island.
He is also well known as a newspaper columnist.
