Cult comedy Little Britain is going on an 18-date tour in 2005 – although the closest it gets to these parts is Ipswich.

Stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams have created a stage show based on the hit TV series. Lou and Andy, shell-suited teenager Vicky Pollard and "only gay in the village" Daffyd will all be appearing.

“We started out doing live shows together but we haven't toured the UK since 1997 so we're really looking forward to getting back on stage,” said Lucas.

“We like to be quite naughty and spontaneous, getting the audience involved. In fact, we used to confiscate people's shoes, so beware.”

The show - named best comedy at the National Television Awards - is currently showing on BBC3 and will transfer to BBC1 next month.

Tickets for the live dates go on sale from Saturday November 27.
