Matt Lucas and David Walliams start work on new show
Matt Lucas and David Walliams started work on their new show last week, and the pair are "really excited about it".
The former 'Great British Bake Off' co-host has told how he and his 'Little Britain' co-star have been brainstorming ideas, and they now know "what [they] want the show to be".
He said: "Me and David Walliams have started writing together again. We just thought it was time so we quit our jobs and decided to do that.
"I mean I still do 'Fantasy Football League', obviously.
"We just started last week. We got together and we started brainstorming.
"We’ve got an idea for a new show and we need a few more brainstorming sessions but we know what we want the show to be, what the concept of it is. […] We’re really excited about it."
Matt admitted the next step for the comedy pair is to write a treatment for their programme in the hope it will be commissioned.
Speaking on 'The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show' on BBC Radio 2, he added: "It will be a show with us playing lots of characters. But we have to write the treatment for it and we have to go and pitch it and see if anyone wants to make it. But if someone wants to make it, we’ll be thrilled to do it."
In August 2021, David admitted he and Matt were working on a new project.
The former 'Britain's Got Talent' judge said: "Matt is obviously super-busy because he’s got the 'Bake Off' and he’s doing some other big, important things.
"But hopefully in the next year or so we’ll hopefully get something on the screens."
