Elton will be joined by his 1980s cohorts from the original series, including Harry Enfield, Julian Clary and Jo Brand.

While modern contemporaries, such as Rosie Jones, Mawaan Rizwan, Ronni Ancona, Sam Campbell and Jordan Gray, are also set to appear with a mixture of topical sketches and stand-up routines.

Mercury Prize winner Self Esteem will also be providing live music on the show.
