For the first time in almost a decade, Matt Lucas and David Walliams will reunite to bring Little Britain back to Radio 4, where it first broadcast in 2000.

A Brexit-themed special episode of Little Britain, called Little Brexit, will broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Thursday 31 October. The programme will catch up with many of Matt and David’s much-loved characters to see how the hottest topic of modern British history is affecting their lives. Characters we’ll be hearing from include Dafydd, Vicky Pollard, Emily Howard, Marjorie Dawes, Mr Mann, and Lou and Andy.

Joining Matt and David will be original cast members Ruth Jones and Anthony Head, as well as narrator Tom Baker.

Sioned Wiliam, Commissioning Editor for Radio 4 comedy, says: "Matt Lucas and David Walliams are uniquely talented writers and performers as well as one of the UK’s most loved comedy duos. It’s a privilege to have them back on Radio 4, where Little Britain first began almost 20 years ago."
