"We'd love to bring it back in some way and at some point. We're both quite busy boys, but we're speaking often and one idea was to maybe do a stage show of it again.

"It will come back in some form, we're just still figuring out what that will be."

Little Britain originally aired on BBC3 for three seasons from 2003 to 2005 (which you can currently stream on Netflix in the UK), as well as returning for various specials for the likes of Comic Relief. It featured iconic characters like Vicky Pollard and Marjorie Dawes.

David Walliams And Matt Lucas Apologise For Using Blackface In Little Britain

published at7 months ago

Speaking to The Sun last year, Walliams explained: "I would say there will definitely be some more Little Britain coming. I can't say when exactly but at the right time and place. It was fun coming back for radio because that's where we started.

"We had to put it together quite quickly as it was about Brexit. Plus no one expected us to come back on the radio. You would have expected Comic Relief or a big live tour. The reaction was great, which was encouraging."

He added: "Matt and I have been getting lots of offers to do more things together again. We just need to decide whether it is revisiting something we've already done or working on something brand new or doing both those things."
