Mel and Sue planning to write together

Share article:

Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are often making plans to write together.

The TV duo - who have teamed up on the likes of "The Great British Bake-Off" and short lived chat show "Mel And Sue" - were last seen teaming up earlier this year on "The Generation Game", but there are more plans on the horizon.

Appearing on ITV's "Loose Women" on Tuesday (23.10.18), Mel said: "Susan. Oh, she's not my former partner, very much current. We speak, I would say, at least once a week. We talk about writing together a lot. We shamble around together, yeah."

The 50-year-old star revealed the popular presenting pair are still close after their time on "The Great British Bake-Off" ended in 2016 with the show's move from BBC to Channel 4.

Asked if they'd work together in next year, she admitted: "Yeah, we will do actually."

Her comments come after it was revealed she and Sue, 49, will co-star as Jamie and Fran in upcoming Sky One comedy "Hitmen".

Executive producer Myfanwy Moore said: "We are so excited to be working with the truly fantastic female comedy partnership that is Mel and Sue, who can brandish bullets and banter brilliantly in equal measure."

The six-part comedy sees pals Jamie and Fran stumble into roles as contract killers and get derailed by "incompetence, bickering, and inane antics".

Mel's alter-ego Jamie has been hailed as an "affable goof ... content to spend her days hanging out with her best mate", whilst Sue's character is "super sensitive" and "starts to question whether it's really the life she wants".

The script has been written by Joe Parham and Joe Markham with additional credits by Mel and Sue.
