Katherine Ryan new team captain on E4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats

2008 Funny Women Awards winner Katherine Ryan is the new captain on E4’s 8 out of 10 Cats, which resumes tonight! Ryan will be joining the show alongside her regular co-host Jimmy Carr and going head to head with team captain Rob Beckett.

Katherine Ryan said: “By now, everyone knows that I have information on Jimmy and I’m not afraid to use it. There have been many baby steps, but appearing on Cats in 2012 was without a doubt my biggest break. Describing a new The Voice style format called The Arse – a search for Britain’s greatest bum on the show was a life-changing moment and I cannot wait to return to Cats as team captain alongside my good friend, Rob Beckett.”

Channel 4 commissioning editor, Tamsin Dodgson said: “Over the past few years, Katherine Ryan has become a staple of fresh comedy on Channel 4.

“Her appearances as a panellist on Cats have been unforgettable, but we are now beyond thrilled that Katherine will be bringing her razor-sharp wit and savage comedic style to the show full time.”

2015 Funny Women Awards finalist Sophie Duker will be a guest on tonight’s show, so put it on your viewing schedule!
