Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer turned the game show format on its head with the surreal show Shooting Stars - and now the comedy duo are back. This time in a sitcom, filmed in front of a live studio audience.

'House of Fools' is set in Bob's house - with Vic playing the long term and mostly unwanted guest. Vic whose real name is Jim Moir joined BBC Breakfast to talk about the new show and why he enjoys performing in front of a live studio audience.
