Vic and Bob revive Big Night Out for full series

Share article:

Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer are writing a full series of "Vic and Bob's Big Night Out" for 2018.

The comedy duo first worked together on "Vic Reeves Big Night Out" in 1990, launching their successful double act which has continued for 27 years, and they will follow up the upcoming Christmas special with a full series.

Vic told The Sun newspaper: "We're going to start writing a full series of "Big Night Out" in January. We'll spend next year on it.

""Vic and Bob's Big Night Out" is pretty much like "Shooting Stars" without the guests

"TV audiences are a lot older now so if you do a bit of nostalgia, it's always going to appeal to them."

He said: "I'd like to go back and do some more. They were talking about me doing some more next year."
