Never Mind Buzzcocks axed by BBC
TELLY pop quiz Never Mind the Buzzcocks has been axed by the BBC after 28 series.
It has been hosted by comics Rhod Gilbert, Simon Amstell and Mark Lamarr and regularly featured Phill Jupitus ( above), Sean Hughes and Noel Fielding as captains.
Highlights from the BBC Two show include the 2007 episode where Ordinary Boys singer Preston walked off after Amstell read extracts from the autobiography of his then-wife, Chantelle Houghton.
Fun Lovin’ Criminals frontman Huey Morgan once smashed his mug and walked off when hosts, Rizzle Kicks, poked fun at him.
A Beeb spokeswoman said: “We’d like to thank all the brilliant hosts over the years.”
