The Vicar of Dibley Returns For One Night Only

The Vicar of Dibley Returns For One Night Only

The Vicar of Dibley is set to return this week for a special appearance, as part of the BBC‘s Big Night In telethon.

Comic Relief and Children in Need are uniting for the first time to raise money for healthcare workers, charities and local organisations and communities during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Dawn French teased the news on her Twitter page, tweeting a close-up photograph of herself in the iconic collar and cross necklace combo.

“Hmmm. Somethin interestin this way comes….,” she tweeted, adding “Thurs ⁦@BBCOne⁩ 7-10pm #BigNightIn.”

In a further statement, the comedian said: “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.”

Since the show aired its last proper episode on New Year’s Day 2007, there have been a handful of sketches for charity, the latest being in 2015.

Since that sketch aired, actors Emma Chambers (Alice) and John Bluthal (Frank) both passed away in 2018, while Roger Lloyd-Pack (Owen) died in 2014.

The Vicar of Dibley is not the only show to return for the Big Night In telethon, as Little Britain will be making a comeback too.

The Big Night In will air live on Thursday, April 23 from 7pm-10pm on BBC One and on iPlayer.
