French and Saunders is to return for the first time in 10 years.

The comedy sketch show – which starred Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders – is said to be making a return to our TV screens for a festive special which is expected to air on Christmas Day and the pair have already started filming the project.

Dawn said: “There’s some ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ in there. We had fun with some of the costumes.”

The 59-year-old star also revealed the pair will poke fun at reality TV stars who get drunk and have sex on TV at holiday resorts too, telling the Daily Mirror: “I am shocked by how they behave. You reckon they’d want to meet someone who would love, cherish and respect them.

“But instead they go out and get utterly hammered and are s****ing in a bush and coming out and going, ‘Yes!’, like men.”

French and Saunders aired for seven series, running on and off for 20 years from March 1987 to December 2007.
