"Birds Of A Feather" is set to return with a new series next year.

Lesley Joseph - who plays mutton dressed as lamb man-eater Dorien Green in the hit sitcom - has revealed she and her co-stars Linda Robson and Pauline Quirke are in talks with ITV about doing an instalment in 2019 to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

Speaking to The Sun's Bizarre column, the 72-year-old actress said: "We are hoping to commemorate the show next year with a new series. Discussions are happening at the moment. We think it would be amazing way to celebrate, we've started a petition.

"The producers are talking about it, after we did a Christmas special last year, the popularity has stayed for 30 years. The fans are keen for it."

"Birds Of A Feather", which originally hit television screens in 1989, returned for its annual festive special last year after it was revived in 2014 by ITV.

Meanwhile, Linda, Lesley and Sharon - who plays Sharon Theodopolopodous in the show - have have been good friends for years and buy each other the same presents - something with birds on it - for Christmas every single year.

Linda said: "We buy the same thing for each other every year - anything with birds on - and I buy them their centre decorations for the Christmas tables ..."
