Noel Fielding is to front a one-off programme in the style of Japanese game-shows, Channel 4 has announced.

The 60 minute show, tentatively titled Only in Japan, will see Fielding delve into Japanese popular culture and in particular, the weird and wonderful world of Japanese game-shows.

Fielding will explore the news, adverts, products and inventions from the land of the rising sun – from the slightly unusual to the downright bizarre.

The show will then see two teams of famous faces compete in rounds styled on Japanese game-shows in a bid to win the honour of becoming champions, and to see if the popular phenomenon could take off in Britain.

Air dates and guest stars are yet to be announced.
