Comics brave gents as lay-dees

David Walliams and Matt Lucas raised eyebrows while filming their new series - after nipping to the gents dressed as lay-dees.

The Little Britain duo filmed their forthcoming BBC One comedy Come Fly With Me at a real airport as passengers milled around.

But it meant the comics had to use the facilities alongside confused travellers while dressed as new characters Keeley and Melody, a pair of check-in girls.

David said: "The interesting thing is we get recognised by some British people who might have seen Little Britain.

"But, obviously, as we're in an airport, a huge percentage of people are from other countries who probably don't recognise us and are just utterly mystified as to why there are two men dressed as women having a pee next to them in the toilet."

Matt added: "I think you surrender your privacy."

The pair have created a series of characters who work in or pass through a fictional airport for their new spoof documentary series, which debuts on BBC One on Christmas Day.

Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
