Sorry, I Didn't Know is returning to ITV for a third series, British Comedy guide can exclusively reveal.

Jimmy Akingbola is also back to host five more episodes of the panel show about black history, which airs on ITV.

That's despite him landing the high profile role of British butler Geoffrey in Bel-Air, the dramatic reimagining of US sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.

Akingbola left his role as immigrant doctor Koji in the ITV sitcom Kate & Koji after the first series because of his US filming commitments, being replaced in the part by Okorie Chukwu.

Campus star Chizzy Akudolu is also coming back to Sorry, I Didn't Know as a team captain. However, it has not been confirmed if stand-up and Loose Women panellist Judi Love will return as her counterpart.

Upcoming guests on the show include Fully Blown star and presenter Verona Rose, The Chase's Shaun Wallace and comedians Russell Kane and White Yardie.

In an October 2020 interview with BCG Pro they spoke about the importance of having diverse stars and crews on TV shows, and how TriForce Productions is "working with over 40 production companies and organisations to help them hire more inclusively."
