Sir Trevor McDonald has been announced as the new face of GamesMaster on E4.

Originally aired in the 1990s on Channel 4, the programme focused on game reviews and a number of video game challenges, with contestants competing to earn the 'GamesMaster Golden Joystick' trophy.

Back then Domink Diamond hosted, with Patrick Moore appearing in pre-recorded segments as the 'Games Master'.

Now renowned broadcaster Sir Trevor will be stepping into Moore's role when the series returns later this year.

He will have the duties of setting up the games and providing commentary.

Speaking on his new role Sir Trevor said: “I am delighted to be taking on this iconic role for a new generation of viewers.” 

Leading the presenting line-up will be Robert Florence, who will also serve as creative consultant on the show.

Frankie Ward and newcomer Ty Logan will join as co-hosts. 

GamesMaster originally aired from 1992-1998 for a total of 126 episodes in seven series.

The three-part reboot is being produced by Future Studios (formerly Barcroft Studios) and Alaska TV in partnership with Oculus Quest 2 from Facebook.
