Dawn French will reprise her celebrated role as vicar Geraldine Grainger of the Parish of Dibley, for The Vicar Of Dibley In Lockdown.
Three new 10 minute episodes will air in December, with a 30 minute compilation episode of all three specials airing later over Christmas.
French commented: “Back in the dog collar, back in Dibley and back on your telly at Xmas. I couldn’t be happier. Bless you.”
Writer and creator Richard Curtis added:“ Like every village in the country, there’s been a lot happening in Dibley this year – and Dawn has got a lot to say about it.”
Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning for the BBC, commented: “This triple festive treat from the nations favourite fun-loving vicar is the warm comedy hug we’ve all missed.”
