Do I Have Any News For You? Viewers were divided over a major change to be made in the series with the start of the new series.
The new series, which started on Friday night, October 8, with comedian Stephen Mangan, was the guest host of the first show, with Paul Merton and Ian Hislop returning as team leaders.
They were joined by comedians Ria Lina and Ross Noble. BBC show that has been going on for over twenty years.
But viewers were distracted by the show’s “epic” title sequence, which featured clips of Michael Gove dancing and his and Prime Minister Boris Johnson in trippy psychedelic backdrops.
Many were excited by the change to the show’s opening, saying it was “the best thing Beeb has done in nearly 35 years.”
But others said it should come with a caveat and were confused when asked if they would return every week for the new series.
Mabe said: “Opening credits for #HIGNFY – the laughter rises here! #GoveRaving #LevellingUp”
