Emma Bunton stars in the second series.

Each episode features comedians getting very drunk in order to tell a true historical story they are passionate about.

As they narrate these stories, slurred word for slurred word, a host of well-known celebrities will act out the new (and rather blurry) versions of history.

Series one of Drunk History was a hit with viewers and almost four million adults have watched the show since it launched.

Drunk History is based on the American TV series of the same name.

Lourdes Diaz of Comedy Central International said: "I am thrilled that we are working with Tiger Aspect again to bring back a second series of Drunk History in the UK. There was a lot of love for the first series and I can't wait to have viewers laughing out loud again with even more hilarious 'historians' and of course, more drinking!"

Filming of eight episodes will start this autumn, with transmission scheduled for early next year.
