Birds Of A Feather may flock back

Birds Of A Feather, staring Pauline Quirke, could return to our TV screens

Popular sitcom Birds Of A Feather could be coming back to television after it was reported that ITV has signed up the original cast for a new series.

The programme, which originally ran on the BBC, starred Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson as sisters sharing a home in the posh Essex town of Chigwell after their husbands were sent to prison.

They will be joined by co-star Lesley Joseph, who played man-eater Dorien Green, in the revival which will be written by the show's creators, Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran.

The Sun reported that the pair approached the BBC with the idea of revisiting the hit comedy but bosses at the corporation only wanted to make a Christmas special and ITV stepped in to sign them up.

The show's three stars reunited last year for a stage version, which proved popular.
