This is fantastic news.
The country was left heartbroken when the last episode of The Vicar Of Dibley aired in 2000 but it seems like we might have the show back.
Actress and star of the show Dawn French has announced that she is bringing her iconic role of Reverend Geraldine Granger (later Kennedy) back for a one-off special as part of the BBC’s The Big Night In.
On Sunday Dawn took to her Twitter account to break the news as she shared:
‘Hmmm. Somethin interestin this way comes…’
‘I’m back in the dog collar, back in the vicarage, and back on your telly as part of The Big Night In.
‘Be there, or go to hell. Literally. I have some sway.’
Now a spokesperson has said to The Sun:
‘Until recently the Vicar of Dibley was self-isolating in the confectionary aisle of her local supermarket.
‘But she is now back in her vicarage, from where, on April 23, she will deliver a message of hope.’
The series stopped filming in 200 but came back for a few special episodes including show’s 10th and 20th anniversaries and well as for Comic Relief – with the last appearance being in 2015.
This really is so exciting we have loved this show for years and to have it back one more time is exactly what we need.
