French & Saunders ‘top secret’ special in the works

According to the British Comedy Guide one of our favourite comedy duos Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are back in the studio to record a new television special!

The pair are apparently planning to record in the newly reopened Television Centre, but the French & Saunders special, still in development, is being kept ‘top secret’ and details are yet to be confirmed. Although the British Comedy Guide speculates that the special is “likely to mark the programme’s 30th anniversary.” A BBC spokesperson told them that: “more details will be revealed in due course”.

We last saw French and Saunders on stage in June when they were awarded their Aardman Slapstick Comedy Legend Award, they also performed in March for Comic Relief.
