Sky has shared a first look at its Never Mind the Buzzcocks reboot, giving fans a glimpse of the teams in action.
The clip shows new team captain and This Country star Daisy May Cooper alongside singer Anne Marie taking part in the “intros round” with Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall.
Bake Off star Noel Fielding returns to Buzzcocks as a team captain – a role he held when the show was on the BBC – while Taskmaster host Greg Davies is behind the desk on presenting duties.

Comedian Jamali Maddix also joins the show as a recurring guest.
Buzzcocks ran for nearly two decades on the BBC, ending in 2015. Mark Lamarr hosted the show from 1996, with Simon Amstell taking over in 2006.
Rhod Gilbert was the last permanent host before it was cancelled by the corporation, while Phil Jupitus stayed with the show from start to finish as a team captain.
Each week, guests from the world of music and comedy will battle head to head, with Sky, Sky News’ parent company, promising the “unpredictability of the original series” and the return of some of the original rounds (as well as few surprises).
Never Mind The Buzzcocks is coming this September to Sky Max and streaming service NOW.
