Blizzards track is The Den's new theme

The Den has returned to our tv screens bringing some much welcome cheer on Sunday nights.

The old gang - Ray Darcy, Dustin the Turkey, Zig and Zag - are up to their old tricks again, and viewers across the nation expressed their delight.

One of the new additions however was the theme tune in the form of The Blizzards song 'Trust Me I'm A Doctor'.

“What a bloody buzz,” the band tweeted, “A song we wrote about getting lucky on holiday is now theme song to one of our favourite ever shows. Huge.”

Meanwhile, Bressie added: “So here is the thing. The show I loved as a young fella is using a song I wrote as a theme song. Head exploded.”

The Den first aired in 1986, and was hosted by Ian Dempsey until 1990, when Ray took over.

The show eventually ended in 2010 after nearly 24 years on air.

The next episode of The Den will air on RTÉ One on Sunday, November 15 at 6:30pm.
