Comedians David Walliams and Matt Lucas will be reuniting once again for a long-awaited Little Britain television return.

Britain’s Got Talent judge David confirmed the news just months after the duo got together for a Brexit special on Radio 4.

The 48-year-old confirmed “there will definitely be some more Little Britain coming”, but couldn’t put an exact date forward for its comeback.

He said: “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.”

However, with opinions on what is and isn’t acceptable in comedy changing, David has admitted there will be some changes to the show.

He added to the Sun: “You’d definitely do it differently because it’s a different time. There’s all kinds of tolerances that change.

“You’ve got to understand comedy, for me, is celebrating things.”

Meanwhile, Matt has also said: “We made a more cruel comedy than I’d do now.”

Vicky Pollard is one of the most iconic Little Britain characters

Before the Brexit Radio 4 special, the two funnymen had not worked together since their 2010 comedy Come Fly With Me, based in an airport.

The pair’s friendship was left strained, with Matt writing in his autobiography that they were often “at loggerheads”.

But they became household names after the popularity of Little Britain and its many unforgettable characters and their hilarious catchphrases.

David has said there would have to be changes to Little Britain nowadays

From tracksuit-wearing chav Vicky Pollard to “only gay in the village” Daffyd, wheelchair-bound Andy and his carer Lou to Bubbles and Desiree, David and Matt had thousands of people in hysterics each week.

But with the comedy focusing on stereotypes regarding race, sexuality, disability, gender and class, it’s clear they wouldn’t get away with it now.

So what will Little Britain look like in 2020?
