Revealed: Guests for the new series of Alan Davies As Yet Untitled

Chortle can today reveal the line-ups for the third series of Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled.

The show returns to Dave on November 3 for a 12-week run, including a Christmas special and a compilation episode.

Each hour-long show involves four guests, usually from the world of comedy, in a free-form conversation.

Dave's general manager, Steve North, has said: 'The relaxed and insightful nature of the show made it genuinely funny for the viewers.'

When the series originally launched last year it was criticised for mimicking the style of American show The Green Room with Paul Provenza, but the creators came to a truce.

Here's our episode guide to series 3.
