Get ready for more gasps, laughs and surprises as Bafta award-winning, Michael McIntyre will bring his Big Show back to BBC One this Autumn for its fifth season.

When will Michael McIntyre Big Show return?

The popular Saturday night extravaganza will be back this autumn on BBC One and will run for six episodes, two less than last year,  in front of a live audience at the London Palladium, while the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane is closed for refurbishment.

What can we expect from the show?

Packed with celebrity guests, breath-taking musical performances and of course the return of series favourites including the Midnight Gameshow and the extremely funny – Send To All.

Will there be a Christmas special of Michael McIntyre’s Big Show on BBC One?

Although not officially confirmed by the BBC, we’re as sure as Santa eating a mince pie on Christmas Eve there will be. With the show being the highest overnight rated show on Christmas Day 2018 (with an average of 6.1 million viewers), we simply can’t see BBC skipping out on a 2019 special.

Michael McIntyre says: “The BBC have once again asked me to steal celebrities’ mobile phones and break in to people’s houses in the middle of the night, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

“The Big Show is back with all the audience’s favourites, Send To All, The Midnight Gameshow and Unexpected Star Of The Show, plus big new ideas. I can’t wait!”

Our planners are set for the Autumn!

Michael McIntyre’s Big Show will air on BBC One later this year.
