Charlie Brooker Bags BBC Two Topical Show 'Weekly Wipe'

Posted: Updated:

Charlie Brooker is returning to BBC Two with a new topical show.

The six-part series, with a working title of 'Weekly Wipe' with Charlie Brooker, will see the satirical comic joined in the studio with celebrity guests as they examine the week's events.

Charlie said: "Every week we'll be looking at TV, games, 'things in the ether', the online world, and anything and everything in-between. And if we need to pad the show out a bit, we'll probably review egg whisks too."

Regular contributor US comic Doug Stanhope will also return to the show and Charlie will also present an hour-long round-up of the year this Christmas that will take in the Diamond Jubilee, the Olympics and the US election.

Executive producer Chris Sussman said: "Charlie Brooker's 2011 Wipe was BAFTA-nominated. More has happened in 2012, so this time we'll definitely win."

Charlie recently wrote hit shows 'A Touch of Cloth' and 'Black Mirror' for Sky1 and Channel 4.

He is married to former 'Blue Peter' presenter Connie Huq.
