Zoe Lyons Returns To Host Second Series Of Lightning

Brighton-based comedian Zoe Lyons is back to present a new series of the quiz show Lightning.

Lyons has recently opened up about her hair loss. She wears a "TV wig" when she appears on screen. Before then she appeared on Have o Got News For You? in a beanie hat.

She told the Mirror: "I’ve quite enjoyed the cliche of being a game-show host in my shiny suit, having my bald patches painted in by a make-up artist.” 


Why Zoe Lyons Is Wearing A Wig

For those who were wondering if Zoe Lyons has been wearing a wig on recent TV appearances on shows such as Live at the Apollo and Celebrity Antiques Road Trip, Lyons has previously explained the situation. The spiky stand-up has stress-related alopecia and at the moment her hair is much thinner than normal so she is wearing a wig.


QI Tonight With Guests David Mitchell, Zoe Lyons And Richard Osman

I don't know why but in my head QI is the poor relation of Would I Lie to You? and Have I Got New For You. Or maybe a more appropriate description is that QI is the older, brainier, sibling, even though chronologically Have I Got News is actually the oldest.

Anyway, enough of that, this panel show is consistently funny as well as enlightening. When Stephen Fry quit the quizmaster's chair the doommongers suggested it might fizzle out, but it is still going strong with Sandi Toksvig at the helm.
