"We've just had a third series commissioned, so that's great," said Whitehall. "I don't know how many [episodes] they plan to do, but I love doing it."

However, Whitehall also voiced his dissatisfaction with Fresh Meat's time-slot on Tuesday nights at 10pm.

"I just wish it had a better slot," he admitted. "Students will find it, but it would be nice if it got more of an audience who don't know about it, and I'm not sure it will get that on Tuesday night after Jewish Mum of the Year."

Penned by Peep Show writers Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, Fresh Meat follows six students who live in a shared house in Manchester.

The second eight-part series started airing on October 9 on Channel 4 and is set to conclude this Tuesday (November 27).
