Little Britain to return for BBC charity special
Viewers can tune into the The Big Night In on BBC One on Thursday 23rd April.
Comedians Matt Lucas and David Walliams are to bring back their wildly successful comedy series Little Britain for a special one-off sketch.
The pair will reunite for BBC One’s three-hour charity special The Big Night In due to air next week on Thursday 23rd April from 7pm to 10pm.
As described by the broadcaster, the show will “celebrate the acts of kindness, humour and the spirit of hope and resilience that is keeping the nation going during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic."
This marks the first time in a decade that the series, which ran for three seasons between 2003 and 2005, has been on the air.
It’s not yet known which of their many characters the pair will be playing.
Rumours of an official return for the series have been circulating for a while with Lucas confirming that the duo had spoken to Netflix in a recent interview with Radio 2.
Another sketch will see Catherine Tate bring back her schoolgirl character Lauren who’s trying to learn remotely with her teacher played by David Tennant.
