Roger Moore to host satirical TV news show

The James Bond legend will present an edition of the BBC’s Have I Got News for You, which features series panellists Ian Hislop and Paul Merton discussing the week’s events – and Sir Roger can’t wait for the challenge.

He says, “I’m really looking forward to appearing on one of my favourite shows and just hope Ian and Paul will treat this old English actor gently.

“If not, I’ll press the button which releases their chairs into a piranha-filled pool below and will cackle wildly like (Bond villain) Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Who said I wasn’t a ham?”

The episode is set to air in the U.K. later this year (12).
