The iconic BBC comedy series might be making a comeback...

Little Britain star Matt Lucas says he and co-star David Walliams would love to "bring it back in some way."

Matt's been busy recently, with the news he is replacing Sandi Toksvig on Bake Off .

But he's still keen to revive the sketch comedy that he's most well known for.

The series disappeared from our screens 15 years ago, but that could change if a recent conversation is anything to go by.

Appearing on BBC Radio 2, Matt revealed that he's met with Netflix bosses to discuss a potential reboot.

Speaking to Zoe Ball, he said, "It might happen. We had a conversation with them a while ago and so the seed was planted in our head.

"We'd love to bring it back in some way and at some point. We're both quite busy boys, but we're speaking often and one idea was to maybe do a stage show of it again.

"It will come back in some form, we're just still figuring out what that will be."
