There has been such a hugely positive response to the return of The Den

"Bringing back The Den was one of the best ideas anyone has ever had."

The Den has only been back two weeks, and already it seems like one of the real highlights of 2020.

Sure, there was some trepidation in bringing back a show that hasn't been on the air for over a decade, and began over 34 years ago. Would the chemistry be the same? Would they try to "update" the humour for a new generation? Would there be big changes to the format to make it more attention grabbing?

Turns out, there has been no real reason to worry, as is made very clear from special guest Stephen Fry arriving on Sunday to read some of Dustin's poetry...

Viewers have had nothing but overwhelmingly positive things to say about the show since it came back.

Long may the new season continue!

The Den airs on RTÉ One on Sundays at 6.30pm, and for another taster, check out this "duet" featuring The Mary Wallopers and Dustin:
