Broadcaster Terry Wogan is to return to hosting a TV chat show, 13 years after the end of his BBC One programme.

He will present Wogan Now and Then for satellite channel UKTV Gold, in which he will interview some of the stars who appeared on his original show.

Guests such as Princess Michael of Kent and Rory Bremner will be shown clips of their original appearance and be asked to recount how their lives have changed

Wogan, which was shown three times a week, ran from 1982 until 1992.

The programme, which saw the BBC Radio 2 presenter interview the likes of Sir Paul McCartney and Madonna, proved a ratings hit.

Live audience

The first Wogan Now and Then will be aired on 23 January.

Thirteen one-hour long shows will be filmed in front of a live studio audience, UKTV Gold said.

Chats with Wogan's first-time guests will also trade on nostalgia, with clips from their past TV appearances shown.

"It'll be fun looking back at the way we were and where we go from here," the presenter said.
