Not only are the Carry On movies set to be rebooted, there are plans to film three of them back-to-back, according to reports.
The ‘Carry On’ movies are set to return, 25 years after the last instalment in the bawdy comedy series. According to reports, two new movies are in the works, called 'Carry On Doctors’ and 'Carry On Campus’, penned by Tim Dawson and Susan Nickson, the pair behind BBC sitcom 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps’. Sadly, it’s not thought that surviving 'Carry On’ stars like Barbara Windsor or Jim Dale will be starring.
Veteran actress Barbara Windsor has said she is “so very honoured, proud and extremely humbled” to be awarded a damehood in the New Year’s Honours. Celebrated thespian Sian Phillips (below, left) is also made a dame, while Imelda Staunton (below, right) receives a CBE, and actors David Oyelowo (below, centre) and James Nesbitt (above) get OBEs. Sporting stars are also well represented, with a knighthood for champion jockey Tony McCoy, former motorsports star John Surtees and footballers Denis Law and Francis Lee receiving CBEs, and two-times Tour de France winner cyclist Chris Froome and snooker player Ronnie O'Sullivan (below) handed OBEs.
