ITV want another Birds of a Feather series

ITV want to commission another series of "Birds of a Feather".

The channel have begged Linda Robson, Pauline Quirke and Lesley Joseph - who play Tracey Stubbs, Sharon Theodopolopodous and Dorien Green respectively - to do another instalment of the hit comedy next year but, although the trio would love to, they're all really busy with other work commitments until the middle of 2018.

Speaking on "Lorraine" on Monday (18.12.17), she said: "A the moment, they're both really busy because Lesley is doing "Young Frankenstein" until August but ITV have asked and hopefully - please God - we'll all get the time to do another series together but at the moment it's just the Christmas specials."

However, although they can't do another series at the moment, fans can tune in to the festive special tonight (18.12.17) and Boxing Day (26.12.17) evening.

She explained: "The Christmas special is going to be a really really good one honestly. We have had a lot of fun with the show over the years and this one in particular because we decide to feed the homeless."
