BBC Three will be returning to Scots television screens next year after an absence of almost six years. The public broadcasting firm made the announcement earlier today after Ofcom published its decision to approve the channel.

It will relaunch in early February 2022 and will be available on Freeview, Sky, Virgin and Freesat - with channel numbers being confirmed at a later date.

The channel was taken off the air back in February 2016 as the BBC sought cost savings across the board.It was shortly replaced by an over-the-top internet television service - airing popular and critically acclaimed shows such as Normal People and Fleabag.BBC said that the decision to return the channel to television will “provide more value to audiences”.Bosses
