Two of the stars of cult comedy The Inbetweeners are to appear in a new sitcom set during World War One.

Simon Bird and Joe Thomas have co-written and will star in Chickens on Channel4 along with Jonny Sweet.

They will play three young men who are left behind while their contemporaries are fighting on the Western Front.

The trio are branded cowards as they struggle to impress the women left on the home front.

Bird, who plays straight-laced Will in The Inbetweeners, said: "We're really excited to be working with Channel 4 on our first sitcom. It's a dream come true for us and we can't wait to get started."
