Rebecca Front has said she doesn't think there'll be another series of The Thick Of It and wouldn't go ahead without Armando Iannucci.

The actress, who played Labour Party leader Nicola Murray, said creator Armando was the driving force behind the series which couldn't be done if he wasn't involved.

She said: "He has said, I think, that he doesn't want to do another series, but he hasn't categorically ruled out the odd one here and there. The long gap [before the last series] was partly because he wanted to wait until the political landscape had settled and because he was busy doing Veep.

"If something suddenly sparked his imagination it might happen, but we certainly can't do it and wouldn't do it without Armando. It's his project and it's all down to his decision."

Rebecca is currently appearing in sitcom panel show Jo Brand's Great Wall Of Comedy with Jo Brand and Barry Cryer.

Jo Brand's Great Wall of Comedy starts tonight (June 16) at 7.30pm on Gold.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
