Chris Evans may resurrect TFI Friday

By Robert Dex

Chris Evans has revealed TV bosses asked him to bring back his hit show TFI Friday for a 20th anniversary special, but wanted him to do it a year early.

The presenter fronted five series of the Channel 4 show which ran from 1996 to 2000.

Speaking to Zoe Ball on Radio 2, he said: "Channel 4 have asked us to do a TFI Friday 20th anniversary show and/or run next year.

"I was completely bang up for it until I did the maths last week and had to phone them and say it's only 19 years next year, it's actually 20 years the year after. I think they still want to go for it and just hope no one notices."

The live show was a huge hit for though it courted controversy – notably when guests including singer Shaun Ryder swore.
