Clunes: Badly remake would be seedy

Martin Clunes would not want to remake Men Behaving Badly

Martin Clunes has branded the idea of a Men Behaving Badly remake "seedy".

The 49-year-old actor starred in the hit 90s sitcom but told The Daily Telegraph he is not keen on the suggested follow-up Old Men Behaving Badly.

Martin said: "I think it's probably quite a seedy notion."

The star suggested that these days, he's very different to his Behaving Badly alter-ego.

While filming ITV drama Doc Martin on location in Cornwall, he deliberately doesn't stay with the rest of the cast in case he ends up drinking too much.

Martin said: "Our house is away from Port Isaac, which is where everyone else is. I'd be lethal. I'd be in the pub every night and would get nothing done. Anyway, I have reams of pages of lines to learn every night."

But he likes to think of himself a modern man, who shares the jobs of raising his 14-year-old daughter with his TV producer wife.

He revealed: "Yes, I'm a modern father, as are all... my contemporaries. And it's not even worthy of comment, if you know what I mean. It's just how it works. It's a bit wrong not to muck in. We're more muck-iny.

"I was really delighted when Emily [his daughter] wasn't putting on weight and had to have some formula when she was a baby because it meant I could feed her. It wasn't just the breast owners who got that treat."

Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
