The nation’s favourite TV vicar, Geraldine Kennedy (née Granger), is back with a special sketch for The Big Night In.

All over the country, people are self-isolating. Until recently the Vicar of Dibley was self-isolating in the confectionary aisle of her local supermarket, but she’s now back in her vicarage, from where on April 23rd she will deliver a message of hope.
