Dawn: TV spe­cial is com­ing... only our script hasn’t

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SQUARE EYES -

French and Saun­ders are back on the BBC this Christ­mas – but ad­mit they haven’t got round to writ­ing it yet.

The duo will cel­e­brate 30 years since their first sketch show with a spe­cial fea­tur­ing some of their favourite old clips wrapped around with some freshly writ­ten ma­te­rial.

Dawn, right, joked they had been given a bud­get of “two pence” and added: “I’ll be sur­prised if we’ve writ­ten it by the time we’re film­ing it be­cause that’s not the way French and Saun­ders work.”

She added: “We’re go­ing to do it in front of an au­di­ence so that’s go­ing to be fun. It’s a cel­e­bra­tion of 30 years of us to­gether.” Dawn, who has just re­leased her book called Me. You. A Di­ary, cel­e­brated her 60th birth­day this week.
