Little Britain to return to TV after a decade long hiatus for The Big Night In
Co-stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams are in talks with Netflix to bring the revival of the hit show to the streaming service.
Little Britain fans, mark your calendar. The popular sketch show created and written by co-stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams is set to return for a one-off performance on The Big Night In, a special BBC One show on Apr 23.
The new sketch will be aired next week as part of a three-hour broadcast to raise funds for Comic Relief and Children In Need to provide support to those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, as well as, to "celebrate the acts of kindness and "the spirit of hope".
Little Britain ran from 2003 to 2005. The duo came together for a Brexit-themed radio special in October last year.
This return to the small screen marks the first time Walliams and Lucas have performed a Little Britain skit together since the Comic Relief special in 2009.
The Little Britain return comes after Lucas revealed the pair have been in talks with Netflix to bring the revival of the hit show to the streaming service.
Speaking to The One Show recently, he said: "It might happen. 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."
