Matt Lucas confirms secret Little Britain talks with Netflix for £3million return – The Sun

MATT Lucas has confirmed secret Little Britain talks with Netflix for a £3million return.

Earlier this week, The Sun Online revealed that the streaming giant hoped to poach Matt and his co-star David Walliams from the BBC in the big money deal.

Now 46-year-old Matt has confessed that the chats did take place, but refused to confirm whether or not they were going ahead with it.

Speaking on BBC Radio 2's Zoe Ball Breakfast Show, the comic explained: "It might happen. We had a conversation with them a while ago so the seed was planted in our heads.

"We'd love to bring it back in some way at some point.

"We're both quite busy boys but we're speaking often (to each other) and one idea was to maybe do a stage show of it again…

"We don't know. It may come back. I think it will come back in some form.

"We're just still figuring out what that will be."

Little Britain started out as a radio show in 2000, hitting the small screen on BBC Three back in 2003.

It was on air for four series, in total – and Netflix wants the series to return bigger and ruder than ever.

A source told us at the time: "Netflix have set up phone meetings next week with David and Matt.

"The offer they are making is more than double the BBC could make. It’d be a package of well over a million each.

"David and Matt don’t need the cash but bosses at Netflix know they are a more viable option for the brand.

"David and Matt have agreed to give the BBC due consideration.

"But the idea of taking Little Britain global and working in a less restrictive environment is a really attractive prospect."

The news comes shortly after it was announced that Matt is replacing Sandi Toksvig as Noel Fielding's co-host on Channel 4's The Great British Bake Off.
