The Last Leg is on its way back! The Last Leg with Adam Hills ran every night during the Paralympics on Channel 4. Continuing the Paralympics party, well after the action had finished.

Today Channel4 have announced that comedian Adam Hills has signed an exclusive one year deal with the channel. Which will see Hills will return with A Last Leg Christmas Special and a full series in 2013. Alex Brooker and Josh Widdecombe, his co-hosts will be resuming their places on the sofa, alongside Hills.

Adam said: "The Paralympics is one of my favourite events in the world. When Channel Four offered me the chance to cover it with The Last Leg, I jumped at it. It's not often you get the chance to do something you absolutely love, that people seem to connect with. I thought The Last Leg was going to be an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I'm over the moon to think that we can do it all again "

Channel 4's Entertainment Commissioning Editor, Syeda Irtizaali said "We knew The Last Leg was something special and we were in no doubt we wanted to keep the show's spirit of open and frank debate alive. We are working on a number of great ideas that will help push the show forward from its paralympic origins into a broad, intelligent and entertaining series. I'm hugely looking forward to working again with Adam, Alex and Josh."

As part of the deal, Channel 4 will also be showing a stand-up special of Hills live in concert recorded in December, at the Lyric Theatre in London's West End. ‘Adam Hills Live From The West End' (W/T) is produced by Open Mike Productions for Channel 4.

The Last Leg was a great addition to the Paralympics coverage and it will be a welcome return to Channel. Will you be watching?
