Comedian Jack Whitehall will return this summer for two specials of Backchat.
The comedy chat show was a hit for BBC Three last year which features Jack alongside his forthright father Michael. The two specials will coincide with Father’s Day and the 2014 World Cup. Celebrity guests will include famous fathers and footballers for the special shows.
