Matt Lucas has revealed that Little Britain is likely to return.
The hit BBC sitcom ended in 2008 after four series but there has long been talk of a possible comeback.
And Lucas has now confirmed that he and co-star David Walliams have been talking about it and that the comedy may return “in some form”.
Chatting to Zoe Ball on her BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show, he also said the pair had had discussions with Netflix about reviving the programme.
"It might happen,” he said.
“We had a conversation with them a while ago so the seed was planted in our heads.
"We'd love to bring it back in some way at some point.
“We're both quite busy boys but we're speaking often (to each other) and one idea was to maybe do a stage show of it again...”
Lucas, 46, went on: "We don't know. It may come back. I think it will come back in some form. We're just still figuring out what that will be."
Earlier this year, Walliams, 48, suggested that if he and Lucas made more Little Britain it might be more ‘woke’.
The original series featured characters such as Ting Tong the Thai mail order bride, wheelchair-user Andy, who was faking his disability, cross-dressing ladies Emily and Florence, Daffyd ‘the only gay in the village’ and Lucas in black make-up as a Mr T look-alike.
Walliams told The Sun he thought the series would return and said: “You’d definitely do it differently because it’s a different time. There’s all kinds of tolerances that change.”
Little Britain began as a radio show on BBC Radio 4 in 2000 and moved to TV in 2003. It ran for four series and five specials, as well as spawning two seasons of spin-off Little Britain USA and two live tours.
