Blur bassist Alex James is set to add Tv presenter to his resume after signing up to host a spin-off of U.K. comedy quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

The rocker is set to front What A Load Of Buzzcocks, which will feature a retrospective look at the history of pop music over the last 17 years through old clips of the series.

James says, "I've always been a big fan of the show and I'm looking forward to seeing some of the highlights from the past 17 years."
