News: No Wipe 2017 For Charlie Brooker

Charlie Brooker

Charlie Brooker's Wipe 2017 will not be happening.

The broadcaster/programme maker/comedian/writer has been forced to give his annual overview a break this year due to work commitments.

Brooker revealed the bad news on Twitter, posting a number of tweets to explain "Got some good news and bad news. Bad news is no 2017 Wipe. Was set to do it but ran out of road. Am way behind on scripts / dev elsewhere and contrary to my optimistic delusions it turns out I can’t do 400 things at once."

"The good news (or bad news depending on POV) is we’ve just delivered CUNK ON BRITAIN (a 5-part history of our glorious nation starring Philomena) to the BBC, and that will be on *soon*."

"More good news to follow soon. That’s it! Now enjoy Christmas / life / Royal Wedding mania."

"(Just to add, Cunk on Britain covers the WHOLE of British history from the Big Bang to Brexit. In five half-hourly chunks.)"
