Comedian Jack Dee will host the next series of long-running BBC Radio 4 show I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue.

The programme was presented by Humphrey Lyttelton for 36 years, until his death last year.

Stephen Fry, Jack Dee and Rob Brydon shared hosting duties for the last series of the show.

Dee will take the helm alone for the next series, beginning on 16 November. A permanent new host has yet to be appointed.

Lyttelton died in April 2008 at the age of 86, following surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm.

After Lyttelton's death it was unclear if the popular show would return.

But last September it was announced it would come back.

Radio 4 controller Mark Damazer said they had "received thousands of bits of correspondence, many expressing condolences for Humphrey, but the overwhelming majority wanted us to bring the show back".
