Penned by Idle, the one-hour show will fea­ture the re­turn of Rut­land Week­end Tele­vi­sion, the hap­haz­ard sta­tion in Idle’s sketch show of the same name dur­ing the 1970s.

Filmed in front of a live stu­dio au­di­ence,

will fea­ture an “ex­plo­sion of com­edy, mu­sic and dance”.

Davis plays The Big Bang and co­me­dian Field­ing is Ein­stein, while

ac­tress Han­nah Wadding­ham tack­les time.

Prof Cox said: “This un­der­mines my cred­i­bil­ity as a serious sci­en­tist. I ex­pect to be the fi­nal nail in the cof­fin.”
