The reality courtroom series judge will present 'Rob Rinder's Good Year Bad Year', a one-hour special that will analyse the most notable and comical moments of the year, on Channel 4.

The 40-year-old star said: "2018 has been the spewing drunk uncle of years, when reason died and was replaced by shouting.

"Politics is no longer rational argument but a Sunday afternoon wrestling match.

"The year has left everyone sick, exhausted, and so angry they're not even talking to each other.

"It's basically been like a year of Boxing Day.

"I'm going to buck that trend, smash through the echo chambers and burst the filter bubbles, whilst playing some incredibly funny clips."

The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant will delve deep into the talking points of the year to provide audiences with a perceptive and funny reflection of 2018.

He will be accompanied by a host of celebrity guests including Anthony Scaramucci, Deborah Frances-White, Ed Balls and Clare Balding.

Ben Wicks, creative director of comedy entertainment at Expectation, said: "With a reputation for his straight-talking, no nonsense approach to any situation, Rob is the perfect person to help us through the post-Christmas blues with this hilarious and insightful look back over 2018."

Syeda Irtizaali, commissioning editor of entertainment at Channel 4 said: "Intelligent, witty, provocative and thought-provoking, he is the perfect host to really delve into a year of madness and hyperbole and find the glimmers of hope and humour."

At the end of the special, Rob will decide once and for all whether the year will be chalked up as being a "good" or "bad" one.
