A planned revival of cult TV comedy Bottom by Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson has been axed.

The duo were working on a new project for the BBC called Hooligans' Island, but they have now ditched their plans.

They were due to revive their characters Richard Richard and Eddie Hitler, taking them to a tropical location.

But Adrian said in an interview for BBC Radio Essex said the series would no longer be going ahead: "We started working on something and we realised why we stopped working together. It wasn't working."

He added: "Once you get to a certain age you want to do things you really enjoy, not just things you can do."

A BBC spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that Hooligans' Island is not going to be made."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Expressing your creative side is strongly advised. Take this opportunity to write, paint or play music. Relatives may not appreciate your work, but that doesn't matter. The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
