A new series of Have I Got News for You begins tonight – and it's set to be a magical occasion.

That's because the boy wonder and former wizard – Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe – is chancing his arm as the show's guest presenter.

Ever present team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton will be casting their eyes over recent events, which may or may not include Jeremy Clarkson, who is still penned in to be a presenter later on in the new series.

In this episode guests on the panel include Diane Morgan, who is best known to TV viewers for playing Philomena Cunk on Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe, and writer and satirist Armando Iannucci – the man behind In The Thick Of It.
