Speaking about the plans, Walliams said: "Yes I'd like to. Me and Matt are meeting up and talking about projects. We took my mum out for dinner. We are discussing projects.

"We just have an idea of something we want to do. The idea - where we play lots of different characters, which is, you know, something people expect from us - and so we're just going to start writing it, and if we feel it's good and we want to share it with people, we'll ask if anyone wants to put it on TV."

He also spoke about the future for Britain's Got Talent, adding: "Apparently he's [Simon Cowell] coming back to the show and we're meant to be doing the show next year.

"We couldn't do it this year because - with everything that's going on - audiences and also there's 50 people in a choir, 100 people in a dance group, that kind of thing, which is a shame.

"But it's probably good for the audience, quite nice to have a break and then you have a bit of a comeback."

Joining David Walliams on the show will be Noel Gallagher who responds to brother Liam saying he turned down £100m for a comeback tour telling Jonathan: "Why do you say 'it's not necessarily untrue' - because it is untrue.

"There isn't £100m in the music business between all of us... if anybody wants to offer me £100m now, I'll say it now, I'll do it. I'll do it for £100m. Ludicrous. What is funny though is that I think Liam actually believes it, which is the funny thing."

Asked if he misses performing on stage with Liam, Noel says: "Not particularly no. It's a different band. It's a different thing."

Asked about his mum saying in a documentary that she wishes they could sort it out and wish it hadn't ended the way it had, Noel says: "We all do, but the fact of the matter is, it did and everybody's moved on.

"And on that subject, I talk to my mum every other day and she's never mentioned it to me once."

He adds: "It was all wrapped up in youth and camaraderie and all that. Once that has gone you cannot put that genie back in the bottle. It would just be for showbiz and for a mere paltry £100m..."
