Dawn French announces the Vicar of Dibley return

Vicar Of Dibley is making a one-off comeback as part of BBC’s Big Night In – a one-off remote fundraiser.

Dawn French teased Geraldine’s return to our screens after a five-year absence, with the beloved sitcom character obviously never one to miss an opportunity to raise money for a good cause.

Dawn later added: ‘I’m back in the dog collar, back in the vicarage, and back on your telly as part of The Big Night In. ‘Be there, or go to hell. Literally. I have some sway.’

She will make an appearance during the three-hour live stream, which kicks off this Thursday at 7pm.
