After well over a decade away from our screens, The Vicar of Dibley is returning to bring a little joy to 2020 with a series of lockdown specials.

Dawn French will return as the hilarious Geraldine Granger, who provides the residents in her quaint little village with counsel and support, all while getting herself into some ridiculous predicaments.

Co-starring in the new series is James Fleet, better known as the dim-witted Hugo Horton, who will be chatting with the vicar about his lockdown frustrations after being trapped at home with his stern father.

The Vicar of Dibley in Lockdown starts on BBC One on Monday 7th December at 8:50pm, following a repeat of a classic episode from the series.

The new series of Christmas specials will consist of three episodes in total, each one clocking in at 10 minutes long, which will be repeated as a half-hour show later in the festive season.
