Comedy Central has ordered a third series of Roast Battle.

The recommission has been confirmed before the second series has been broadcast.

Five more 30 minute episodes will be filmed in London this October. The channel says the series will "maintain its winning mix of top comedians and new faces sparring it out, as they strive to take each other down with their quick wit and best insults. Each episode will culminate with one of two comedians crowned winner by the all-star judging panel."

Roast Battle has become a hit franchise for Comedy Central.

Series 1 of the UK version set ratings records for the channel, and the format has since been adapted in Canada, Mexico, South Africa and Finland.

Louise Holmes from Comedy Central says: "Roast Battle UK is a unique format that has really struck a chord with our viewers. We can't wait to get started on the new series with the darkest and sharpest comedians in the UK to give more jaw-dropping, gasp out loud moments to our studio audiences and viewers at home."

Jimmy Carr, Katherine Ryan and Jonathan Ross will act as the judges on Series 3, continuing on their roles from Series 2.

The second series of Roast Battle launches on Comedy Central on Monday 1st October. It will see verbal jousting between Tom Rosenthal & Chris Ramsey; Ivo Graham & Fern Brady; Mark Watson & Andrew Maxwell; Catherine Bohart & Sarah Keyworth (a couple in real life); Daniel Sloss & Phil Wang; Stephen Bailey & Darren Harriott; Jessie Cave & Alfie Brown (separated parents); Matt Richardson & Angela Barnes; Alex Brooker & Rosie Jones; and Rose Matafeo & Naz Osmanoglu.
