Caitlin Moran has asked fans to take action after Channel 4 confirmed it has not recommissioned her sitcom Raised By Wolves.

The author and columnist, who penned the semi-autobiographical programme with her sister Caroline, has joined forces with the show's producer Big Talk in a bid to save it.

Moran appeared in a YouTube video clip to encourage people to "join the rebel alliance" in order to bring the sitcom back for a third series.

In an expletive-laden message, the comedian said: "Due to a combination of the death of David Bowie and the unexpected Brexit vote, Raised By Wolves will not be returning to Channel 4 next year."

She added there was a "gigantic plan" in place before asking people to use the hashtag #upthewolves and visit a specially-made Facebook page to pledge their support to the campaign.

Raised By Wolves first aired in 2013 and follows a version of the Moran sisters' upbringing in Wolverhampton, but is set in the modern day.
