Former Christchurch Mayor Sir Bob Parker will return to television tonight as he fills in on the Paul Henry Show.

Sir Bob, who made his name fronting This Is Your Life, has not been a TV host since 1996. However, in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake he became a regular fixture on screens as he reassured the city.

He was knighted in January for services to local body affairs and the community.
