Jay announced the good news at the TV BAFTAs in May after the programme picked up the Daytime award. "I think we've been commissioned for another two years if I'm not mistaken," he said in the winners' room. "We are going to do more. We've just won a BAFTA so I think they're going to want us to stay on air."

The cast of the show has made no secret about their close bond and clearly enjoy filming together. In an interview with The Guardian earlier this year, Jay said: "We spend nine months a year filming, all staying in the same hotel and having meals together, so we've become like a family."

He also opened up about his future as the main host of the show. When asked how long he would stay with the series, he said: "I don't see myself going anywhere. 

"If they'll have me, you might see me grow very old in that barn. I already shave my head but my eyebrows might go grey."
