Catherine Tate is to reprise her role as ‘Nan’ for two new specials for BBC One. The news comes after the BBC gave ‘Nan’ her own half hour sitcom last year. Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning, says: “Nan is one of the most iconic comedy characters of our time and it’s thrilling to welcome her back to BBC One. Catherine’s performance is as close to comic perfection as you can get.
The two specials are to be filmed this year with a transmission date expected early 2016.
