Matt Lucas has said that he and David Walliams are “definitely up for doing more” Little Britain after the comedy returned to television screens for the first time in a decade.
The comedian told Lorraine Kelly on Good Morning Britain that they are considering bringing the sketch show back in one of a number of different formats.
New Little Britain material was aired on Thursday night during BBC One’s Big Night In charity programme.

When asked by Kelly if the pair had considered doing more Little Britain, Lucas said: “Why not, it would be fun.
“We have both got quite a lot on but we are definitely up for doing more.
“It might be nice to do a tour, you know, a stage tour could be fun, or a podcast even, or maybe actually do the show again.
