It is all over

Hurst snubs quiz return

Lee Hurst has reportedly snubbed a chance to return to the TV quiz They Think It's All Over.

Producers wanted the original team captain to make a one-off appearance as a guest for the show's 100th episode.

But the comic turned down the chance of a reunion point-blank, the Mirror reports..

Hurst, 39, quit three years ago to be replaced by Jonathan Ross.

An unnamed insider told the paper: "It would have been a chance to bury the hatchet, but it was not to be."
