Taskmaster star Alex Horne is to make his debut on Have I Got News For You on Friday 7th June, guest hosting the final episode in the panel show's latest series.

Joining Alex as guests on the panel will be broadcaster Carol Vorderman, making her 5th appearance on the programme, and comedian Jack Dee, his 21st time on the show.

On hosting HIGNFY for the first time, Little Alex Horne says: "Although I suspect it's an admin error and they actually want me to pass the request on to my boss, I'm very excited to be hosting an episode of Have I Got News For You. I am rarely in charge, whether at work, at home or by myself, so I'm hoping a hitherto undiscovered domineering side of my personality will be unleashed all over Paul and Ian."

Episode 10 of Series 67 will be on BBC One on Friday 7th June at 9pm.

This week's episode (Episode 8, 24th May) sees University Challenge host Amol Rajan taking charge, with Richard Osman and Baroness Ruth Davidson as the guests.

Episode 9 (31st May) will have Victoria Coren Mitchell as host, with news presenter Sophy Ridge and Chris McCausland on the panel.
