“The first time all the musical guests are in the same room as one another since lockdown. Wooooohoooo. I will reveal more about lineup and new location soon. Until then, to give you a smell of it, here’s the full opening titles filmed in my layout.”
The BBC have revealed that the first episode will feature Isle of Wight duo Wet Leg, US singer and blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa, Nigerian-born, London-based artist Obongjayar and BRIT School alumni and south Londoner Cat Burns to the show.

Liam Gallagher is also in the news for his preparations for his upcoming gigs at Knebworth, where he is due to perform for 160, 000. Liam told The Sun, “I’ve got a month to prepare for Knebworth so I’m going to stay out of trouble, stay in the house, chill out, eat well, do some exercise and not drink alcohol or do any of that nonsense.
“As you get older you’ve got to prepare right for these gigs.
“You can’t be going there like you’re 20 otherwise it’ll sound s**t and people pay a lot of money, so I’ve got to prepare right.”
The Knebworth gigs are the biggest of Liam’s solo career and will take place on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June 2022.
