Former Have I Got News For You presenter Angus Deayton is going back to school with a role in the next series of Waterloo Road.

He is joining the cast of the long-running BBC show as world-weary language teacher George Windsor, and is currently filming in Greenock, central Scotland.

The show, which was filmed in Rochdale for many years, explained its recent relocation in a storyline in which some of the teachers and pupils at the troubled comprehensive set up an independent school in Scotland.

Angus has appeared in shows including the black comedy Nighty Night and One Foot In The Grave.

He was axed from Have I Got News For You in 2002, as panellists consistently made him the butt of their jokes after a series of newspaper stories about his private life.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
