We’re still very excited!

It’s been almost 10 years since Miranda aired its first episode on BBC1 – and to celebrate its 10th anniversary in November, creator Miranda Hart has revealed it is returning to our TV screens, but not in its typical fashion.

Sharing the news on Twitter, Miranda revealed that the cast and crew would be reuniting for a special get together - although sadly, she clarified that the reunion is strictly an on-air party and not a new episode.

She wrote: "Such fun news alert. Hello to you - I am with news. So in November, it will be 10 years since the first episode of Miranda aired. We are 10! And we have decided to have a party (not a new episode).

“The Miranda cast on and off screen are all about play, being free to be ourselves and silliness, so we are amazed and delighted that BBC One have agreed that our celebrations will be recorded as a one hour special later in the year.

“I will keep you posted, but I suspect there might just be some special guests, probably the odd bit of dancing, definitely some drinks and nibbles.

“And you know what I hope it will be - SUCH FUN for us, but more importantly for you, all you lovely friends of the show for whom I shall be forever grateful for your support. See you soon."

Understandably, some fans assumed that the reunion was in fact a new series, something Miranda quickly clarified.

She tweeted: “I’ve had so many texts today from friends saying they are happy Miranda is back. Which is lovely. But it’s not (maybe one day). But this year we’re having a 10th birthday party celebration entertainment, not scripted sitcom special. I hope you will all still like it. Larks ahead.”
