In a press release issued his week, host Chris said: ""I can't believe it's been almost 20 years since the first episode of TFI, and I'm thrilled to be bringing the show to a whole new generation who have never experienced the wonders of Baby Left Baby Right or It's Your Letters."

The extended special will celebrate the history of the iconic and anarchic show, reflecting on its best moments as well as introducing new features. Ooh, exciting!

Chris had confirmed the return via Twitter last month, telling his fans: "All went well. TFI Friday will return – live 9pm, Channel 4, Friday June 20 for a ninety minute special Yahoo!"

He had previously said: "Channel 4 have asked us to do a TFI Friday 20th anniversary show or run next year. I was completely bang up for it until I did the maths 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 noone notices."

TFI Friday was broadcast from 1996 until 2000.
