He’s had much to celebrate over the past few weeks, after it was announced that he will host new primetime BBC show The Wheel.

And Michael McInyre appeared to be in an infectiously upbeat mood on Wednesday, when he was spotted enjoying an al fresco lunch with a pal in London’s Primose Hill.

The 44-year-old comedian also displayed his quirky sense of style as he donned spiked Nike golf shoes while enjoying a glass of wine in the balmy summer sunshine.

The bespectacled TV personality looked casually cool for his culinary outing, wearing a black polo top, which he teamed with a pair of navy shorts.

Father-of-two Michael laughed and chatted with his friend as they sat among a small crowd of diners looking out onto the English capital’s bustling streets.  

Last month, it was announced the comic, who is married to Simon Ward’s aromatherapist daughter Kitty, would front The Wheel for the BBC.

Producers said the show would include celebrity guests, interesting contestants and ‘laugh out loud moments’, putting a new spin on ‘the most exciting funfair ride’.

‘Contestants will be competing to win big money, celebrity experts will have their knowledge put to the test, and I will desperately be trying to avoid too many puns.
