05-Nov-2012 • Media Alert

James Bond star Sir Roger Moore will guest host the popular satirical news quiz "Have I Got News For You" later this month.

Recorded a day earlier by Hat Trick Productions in London, the episode will be broadcast on BBC1 at 21:00 on on Friday 23rd November 2012. An extended version, "Have I Got A Little Bit More News For You" will air on BBC1 the following Sunday.

Speaking about the upcoming show, the 85-year-old said: 'I'm really looking forward to appearing on one of my favourite shows and just hope Ian and Paul will treat this old English actor gently.

'If not, I'll press the button which releases their chairs into a piranha-filled pool below and will cackle wildly like Ernst Stavro Blofeld… who said I wasn't a ham?'

Moore will preside over panelists comedian Marcus Brigstocke and journalist Rachel Johnson, who join regular team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton.
