Jamie Oliver and Eddie Izzard sign up to Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2011

TV chef Jamie Oliver and comedian Eddie Izzard have joined Channel 4’s annual Christmas round-up The Big Fat Quiz of the Year along with Miranda Hart, while show favourites Noel Fielding and Russell Brand will not be returning.

Hosted by Jimmy Carr, the comedy quiz show, which looks back at the most notable moments of the year in news, music, TV and showbiz, is now a regular fixture of Channel 4’s Christmas schedule.

The quiz will see some new faces this year, with Jamie Oliver and Eddie Izzard among the celebrities confirmed for the 2011 round-up.
Both have never appeared on the show before, nor has comic Miranda Hart.

The new additions will join long-serving team members Jonathan Ross, David Walliams and David Mitchell, with cameo appearances from stars who made their name during the past year expected along the way.

Fans of the show will be disappointed to hear there will be no Noel Fielding or Russell Brand however, who had the audience in hysterics in 2006 when they formed their quiz team The Goth Detectives.

The Big Fat Quiz of the Year will be broadcast on December 27 at 9pm on Channel 4.
