Catherine Tate's comedy alter-ego Nan is making a comeback.

The foul-mouthed pensioner is returning to BBC One in 2016, for two half hour episodes.

BBC controller of comedy commissioning Shane Allen said: "Nan is one of the most iconic comedy characters of our time and it's thrilling to welcome her back to BBC One.

"Catherine's performance is as close to comic perfection as you can get."

Nan was one of the most popular creations from The Catherine Tate Show, which ran from 2004 to 2009 and also featured schoolgirl Lauren "Am I Bovvered" Cooper.

The grandmother returned to TV screens in 2014 for a one-off special.

The new episodes, co-written by Tate, will be filmed later this year.
