'If there really is a God, I will get a Monkman toy for Christmas.'

Back in September, everyone’s favourite Canadian Eric Monkman swept onto our screens and stole our hearts. 

Last night, the University Challenge legend and Wolfson College Cambridge team captain was back - and so were his legions of fans. 

Viewers were so excited, they barely even noticed Jesus College star Sam Fairbrother was on the show. (And that he was wearing sleeves.)  

 

People were thrilled Monkman was back on TV...

One viewer even made some fan art to mark the occasion. 

It didn’t take long for viewers to remember why we fell in love with Monkman in the first place.

(His enthusiasm, bellowing voice and similarity to Coronation Street’s Roy Cropper, if you were wondering.) 

Seriously, people are obsessed. 

Thankfully, Wolfson College Cambridge won the round, meaning Monkman will be back on our screens very soon. 

Maybe it will be a merry Christmas after all?
