BBC2 to air HIGNFY out-takes

Out-takes from Have I Got News For You are to be included in the Saturday-night repeat.

The programme, which is aired on BBC2, will run five minutes longer than Friday night BBC1 airing to accommodate the extra footage.

The expanded repeat, which starts this weekend, will also be renamed Have I Got A Little Bit More News For You.

BBC2 controller Jane Root said: "This is the programme for anyone who wonders what ends up on the cutting room floor."
