Vicky McClure Says She'd Love To Do Another This Is England Movie

Vicky McClure has revealed she's keen to do another This Is England film and that creator Shane Meadows even has an idea for a new story.

However, before we all get too excited, she also added that it's not on the cards at the moment, so we might have a bit of a wait before we see what Combo, Shaun and Woody are up to now.

Speaking to Fearne Cotton who was standing in on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show today, she said: "I live really close to Shane, so we see each other and we speak and it's never like the first thing we talk about but it's always sort of mentioned.

"We both would love to do it. I'm sure all of the cast would love to do it. It's just not something that's on the cards at the moment so I wouldn't want to get anyone excited without it being set in stone. But he's got an idea and I've heard it and it would be incredible."

Vicky played Lol in the movie, which told the tale of a young boy called Shaun (played by Thomas Turgoose) who became friends with a bunch of skinheads in 1983.

The film, which also starred Stephen Graham and Joseph Gilgun, was a big hit with both audiences and critics. It went on to spawn three spin-off mini-series - This Is England '86, This Is England '88 and This Is England '90, with the last series being aired in 2015.

All the way back in 2015, just as the last series was about to air, Vicky announced that she hoped there would be a reunion at some point.

She told the Telegraph: "It makes me sad that I'm not going to play Lol and that we are not going to be in that gang again. I just hope that This Is England continues to be shared with younger generations and maybe one day there will be a reunion."

Well, now seems like the perfect time to me, guys. We've all waited long enough.

For now, you can see Vicky star alongside her former cast-mate Stephen in the new series of Line of Duty which lands on BBC on 31 March.
