We're proud to announce that one of televisions best-loved families, The Kumars, are returning to our screens after their six-year absence on Wednesday 15th January.

After being hit hard during the economic downturn, The Kumars are now living in a flat in Hounslow behind the shop that Dad, Ashwin, now runs. Host Sanjeev is divorced from his wife of nearly two years and Ashwin has secured a sponsorship deal that has enabled him to resurrect the family's talk show, which takes place in the living room of their flat. And Grandma Ummi is glad to be back in her natural environment - with celebrities.

Writer and star Sanjeev Bhaskar commented: "Its incredibly exciting to revisit these warm, oddball characters and to be given the opportunity to bring them up to date. We've tried to retain what viewers loved about the original show and to inject new characters and elements in a slightly new format that we hope will appeal to an even broader audience."

Each week, the show features three celebrity guests who become embroiled in the family's domestic squabbles. The first episode features Daniel Radcliffe, Chevy Chase and Olivia Colman with guests across the rest of the series including Ray Winstone, Rupert Everett, Emilia Fox, Richard E Grant, Harry Shearer, James Corden, Terry Gilliam and Twiggy.

Don't miss this family reunion, coming to Sky 1 HD at 9pm on Wednesday 15th January.
