Sorry, I Didn’t Know… the 2016 comedy panel show about Black history is returning to ITV for a four-part series.
Sorry, I Didn’t Know is a hilarious comedy panel show, unearthing everything you didn’t know about Black history. We’ve all heard of Mary Seacole and Martin Luther King, but did you know that the first self-made female millionaire was Black…? [Okay, yes, we knew that one!] Or that the inspiration for the character Monostatos in Mozart’s The Magic Flute’ was Black classical composer Joseph Bologne? Nope, didn’t know that one!
Serving these historical truths with a large side of humour is host Jimmy Akingbola, star of ITV sitcom Kate and Koji. Populated by raucous teams, Sorry, I Didn’t Know is a riotous showcase of some of the hottest comedians from diverse backgrounds that we rarely get to see on such shows, as they embrace the gaping lack of knowledge we all have when it comes to Black history.

Leading the panel are team leaders Chizzy Akudolu (who takes over from Jo Martin) and Judi Love, who are joined by guest appearances from the likes of Paul Chowdhry, Russell Kane and Verona Rose.
Filming for the show, which airs in October, takes place at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith on Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th September, and what’s more, you can get your hands on free tickets.
The team has worked hard to find a safe way to have a live studio audience for the recording and they’ve introduced a raft of socially distanced measures to maintain safety for all. The venue is large and airy, with plenty of handwashing facilities and sanitiser stations.
Each show recording will last about 90 mins to two hours. On both days there will be two recordings; one show in the afternoon and one show in the evening. Ticket holders can stay for one or both shows.

Sorry, I Didn’t Know airs from 6 October 2020 at 8.30pm on ITV2.
