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

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
