Catherine Tate's Nan has new BBC1 show in 2014

Catherine Tate's foul-mouthed grandmother Joannie Taylor is on her way back to BBC1 in new show Nan.

One of Catherine Tate's most popular creations, Nan could be all sweet and lovely one moment only to turn into a swearing monster the next when something or someone annoys her.

In the new show Nan, made by Tiger Aspect, she's worse than ever, now her grandson Jamie (who was played by Mathew Horne) is away in Africa doing voluntary work. It means Nan is now being looked after by a young volunteer Alice, allocated by the 'Young and Old Buddy-Up Foundation'. Predictably Alice has much more on her hands than she bargained for as Nan starts plying up

As Doctor Who's former companion Donna Noble, Catherine Tate has been busy with variuos Doctor Who 50th anniversary events over the past few weks. Nan was last seen in a Children In Need sketch as Holby City's 'worst ever patient. (opens in new tab)' Her new show Nan will be shown in early 2014.

TV Content Director on TV Times, What's On TV and TV & Satellite Week

I'm a huge fan of television so I really have found the perfect job, as I've been writing about TV shows, films and interviewing major television, film and sports stars for over 25 years. I'm currently TV Content Director on What's On TV, TV Times, TV and Satellite Week magazines plus Whattowatch.com. I previously worked on Woman and Woman's Own in the 1990s. Outside of work I swim every morning, support Charlton Athletic football club and get nostalgic about TV shows Cagney & Lacey, I Claudius, Dallas and Tenko. I'm totally on top of everything good coming up too.
