Simon Amstell - new project

As earlier stated, the 29-year-old Simon Amstell is to leave 'Never mind the Buzzcocks'.

A source told The Sun that Amstell now wants to concentrate on other projects: "Simon is a funny guy who can think on his feet but he has decided it is time to move on," the insider said. "He is working on a new project that has been commissioned by the BBC and feels he wants to concentrate on that."

A spokeswoman for the corporation confirmed that Amstell would leave the show at the end of his third series.

Amstell took on the post on NMTB from Mark Lamarr in 2006 and has since won a number of awards for his work at the helm.
