Mock The Week host Dara O'Briain has confirmed that the show has come to an end after 17 years on the air.

The comedy panel show, which takes a satirical look at world events, has been a regular part of the BBC Two schedules since 2005, running for 20 series and 222 episodes to date.

"That's it folks, the UK has finally run out of news," O'Briain announced.

"The storylines were getting crazier and crazier - global pandemics, divorce from Europe, novelty short-term prime ministers. It couldn't go on."

He continued: "We just couldn't be more silly than the news was already. Huge thanks to all our guests over the years, so many of whom went on to huge successes of their own, and never write or call. It was a joy!"

In a statement, the BBC said: "The next series of Mock The Week will be the last. We are really proud of the show but after 21 series we have taken the difficult decision in order to create room for new shows.

"We would like to thank Angst Productions, host Dara O'Briain, panellist Hugh Dennis and all the guest comedians involved in the show across the 21 series."

The final series will air on BBC Two this autumn. body check tags ::
