The series which sees celebrity guests revisiting their teenage years has reportedly been recommissioned for two further series on Comedy Central.

Each celebrity will take a trip down memory lane; competing across fashion, pop culture, retro gadgets, first loves, school reports and more to get their teenage years recognised as the most embarrassing by comedian Rhod Gilbert, and it’s down to Rhod to judge which celebrity should be crowned ‘winner'.

New reports from British Comedy Guide claim that Comedy Central have renewed the format for a fourth and fifth series, the first of which is set to begin next month (May 2022), with series five arriving later in the year.

British Comedy Guide have revealed that guests on the next series include Joe Thomas, Geoff Norcott, Prue Leith, Paul Sinha, Robert Peston, James Acaster and Dr Zoe Williams. More guests will be revealed in due course.

Commenting on the first series commission, Rhod Gilbert said: "I was a very cool teenager, making one good decision after another…fashion, I got it just right, my hair was always great, love was one smooth happy ride after another and I had great taste in music, books and Kay’s catalogues...

"But not all my guests were like me, and I want to hear all about their traumatic teens and adolescent aberrations - the good, the bad, the hormonal and the lock-yourself-in-the-toilet embarrassing."

Rhod Gilbert's Growing Pains returns this Spring on Comedy Central. British Comedy Guide's original report can be found here.
