Matt Lucas Appears To Deny David Walliams Reunion Rumours
Fans of the Matt Lucas/David Walliams comedy duo were left hyped by yesterday's news that the pair might return to TV together once more, with sources suggesting they'd put an end to their alleged eight-year feud.
However, just as soon as the story broke, Lucas took to Twitter to post a message that looks like he's denouncing the rumours.
I can assure you I don't give interviews to the Daily Mail so you can ignore that Baz Bamigboye story today for a start.

He said: "I can assure you I don't give interviews to the Daily Mail so you can ignore that Baz Bamigboye story today for a start."
Hopefully we'll receive more clarity from the comedian, who started out his career as George Dawes on the surrealist panel show Shooting Stars.
However, he really shot to fame when he teamed up with Walliams to write the wildly popular sketch comedy Little Britain, as well as the travel mockumentary Come Fly With Me.
For nearly a decade it's been rumoured they stopped working together due to a fallout and ongoing feud, although yesterday's Daily Mail article suggested that the pair had 'kissed and made up', adding that they 'will work together again next year'.
Big claims indeed, that came from a source who told the paper that the duo are working on a television comeback for the 2019 Comic Relief extravaganza in March.
The source claimed: "It's all very quiet, and very recent, but Matt and David have started speaking again. They've made up, which is amazing and what's even better is that they are in serious discussions to work together next year.
"Both realise they missed one another a lot and realise how much joy they can bring themselves and the general public by making a comeback.
"They are not sure they can make Little Britain work today, as it has come under so much scrutiny, so toned-down Come Fly With Me is seeming the best option at the moment."
Whether the source is speaking the truth or not, earlier last month Walliams himself suggested it could be a possibility.
Walliams was appearing on Chris Evans' Radio 2 segment when the topic of Little Britain was brought up - and when it came to the subject of a revival, he said: "I would like to return to it. I would like to do a live show again, I think that would be fun.
He also suggested that a 'couple of specials' could be in the offing, adding that he had discussed it with Lucas.
"We were talking about [it], there's an idea to possibly do it for charity as well," he explained.
"The show wasn't that big in America. I think we would do Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland."
And it all came from the horse's mouth.
As said, it does look like Lucas has denied the rumours- but whether he and Walliams are gearing up for a TV comeback or not is currently up in the air. More on this to come.
