obert Bathurst, Bernard Cribbins and Mat Horne will star in a remake of three lost "Dad's Army" episodes.

The "Cold Feet" star is to take on the role of Sergeant Wilson when the hat-trick of eps are re-shot, with Bernard in line to be Private Godfrey, and Mat will also appear in the project.

According to the Daily Mail newspaper, Kevin McNally will portray Captain Mainwaring, made famous by Arthur Lowe.
