Such fun! Could it be a Christmas highlight?

Miranda Hart is to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her hugely popular BBC1 sitcom Miranda with a one-hour entertainment special.

To mark 10 years since she first galloped onto our screens as Miranda, the much-loved star will reunite the cast of the show for the special treat at the home of British entertainment, The London Palladium.

The Beeb teases that Miranda: My Such Fun Celebration will be "an unforgettable night of magical memories, and with Miranda at the helm, viewers can expect not only some poignant reflections and behind the scenes titbits but much silliness, dancing and enforced galloping”.

Miranda Hart said: “What happened with my sitcom and comedy alter-ego over the last 10 years have been unexpected to say the least, so it’s very moving for me to have the chance to celebrate and thank my cast and fans from The Palladium stage. We are hoping to put together a what I call such fun hour of television for them all.”

It’s not yet been revealed how many of the cast will be back. But hopefully Tom Ellis (Miranda’s love interest Gary), Patricia Hodge (her long-suffering mum Penny) and Sarah Hadland (her pal Stevie) will be back.

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content added: “Miranda is one of the great British sitcoms so to celebrate its 10th anniversary, this BBC1 special promises an hour of pure unadulterated fun from the home of entertainment itself, The London Palladium.”

Will Macdonald, Executive Producer, Monkey Kingdom said: “Like Miranda, we’re falling over ourselves with excitement to help put together a fabulously deserved celebration of the utter joy she and the show has brought millions of people of all ages for the past decade.”

Miranda: My Such Fun Celebration will be on later this year - it seems likely it will be on over Christmas as it seems the perfect festive treat.
