Lucas confirmed during an interview with BBC Radio 2 that discussions with the streaming service had taken place regarding a revival.

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.”

The comments follow reports from The Sun last week that the pair were set to be offered £3 million to write new episodes of the show.

In January, Walliams claimed that “there will definitely be some more Little Britain coming” although he did not give any information about a time or place.

The first three series of Little Britain, which were originally broadcast the BBC from 2003 to 2006, are currently available to stream on Netflix.
