Comedian and new Great British Bake Off host Matt Lucas has signed a deal to write four new books.
The first released in the new four-book deal will be a family-friendly joke book called My Very Very Very Very Very Very Very Silly Book of Jokes, published on 1st October.
According to publishers Egmont, Lucas’ first joke book is “packed with hilarious jokes to outsmart friends and family including the best knock, knock jokes, classic one-liners and ‘shaggy dog’ stories that will have little ones barking with laughter – as well as a Hall of Fame of the very worst jokes ever.”
No other details about the other books included in the deal have been revealed.
The news comes as Channel 4 gears up for the new season of Bake Off which Lucas will co-host alongside Noel Fielding.
The show will return to screens on Tuesday 22nd September.
