The Newsjack Twitter feed has announced that the first recording of Series 6 will be on 22nd February, so that means the first episode will go out on the 23rd.

Oh God no.

Nicely done Dan! Haven't listened to this yet as I'm paralysed with jealousy and bitterness.

Will give it a spin this weekend. Do you think you'll make 'Pick of the Week'? :)

Hi Jay,

PM your email address, I think I have a few MP3's of the last series. Won't be able to forward them on until the weekend, if you can wait until then.

Congrats Dan in getting in the best of the year show. Nice.

And I see the writing guidelines have gone up for next year. They're very organised this time round.

In a move that has left even myself a bit stunned, I can announce that I've already written a sketch for the new season of this show.

No, it isn't about that ship...it's about something else.

I've got over 4 weeks to do rewrites. This is going to be the best sketch ever.....
