The hit sitcom originally ran between 2001 and 2011, but Susan Nickson - the show's creator - has now confirmed that it'll make a TV comeback and she's already held talks with the BBC about a new series.

Speaking on the 'Drama School Dropout' podcast, Susan explained: "We are talking to the BBC. They are a corporation and in a corporation there are many cogs and those cogs move extremely slowly.

"So basically what you've got, it's me, Will [Mellor], Ralf [Little] and all three of us are just going, 'Yeah, we're here, we'll do it,' and the BBC are going, 'Ah brilliant, yeah let's do it,' and I'm sort of sat here going, 'OK, when?' and they go, 'Well, we don't know'. So, what we're got is a corporation that has no idea."
