After an absence of eight years from the comedy scene, impressionist Alistair Mc Gowan is to return with a new series on ITV1. The show will concentrate on the summer’s big sporting events and let’s face it with the Euros, olympics, cricket and Wimbledon, there’s going to be plenty of material to go at. However there will also be some new impressions of the new generation of TV faces cropping up in the show.
You Cannot Be Serious, kicks off Saturday June 2nd on ITV1

Tim Vine Not Going Out Anymore
Tim Vine has decided to call time on Not Going Out to pursue other projects. Along with Lee Mack Tim Vine is one of the show’s two main stars and fans are worrying his departure may spell the end for the popular comedy that currently pulls in around 5 million viewers. Tim is currently appearing in series 4 and the BBC have commissioned a further two series. A spokesman is reported as saying that the writers are excited about developing new characters for future series. At this point there does not seem to be any doubts over the series future, although we expect that it will all depend on whether the BBC decide to just pull the plug (which seems unlikely) and more importantly how the audience react to any new characters.
We’ve talked about it, given you a sneak peek, now it’s gong to happen. We will launch our new catagories on Jubilee Weekend. The site will feature everything it does now and continue to focus on comedy but we will also be looking at some of the very best British television. Under the general heading of The Other Channel, you’ll find new catagories which we’ll announce shortly.
