Dawn French is to reprise her role as Geraldine Grainger for three new 10-minute lockdown-based episodes of The Vicar Of Dibley, which will be broadcast this Christmas on BBC One.
The BBC tease: "During lockdown, post-lockdown and pre-another-lockdown, Geraldine has been writing and delivering monthly sermons to her parishioners via Zoom... when she can make it work. These new thoughts on life (and chocolate) will air after repeat showings of classic episodes of the multi-award winning The Vicar Of Dibley, this Christmas on BBC One."
Dawn French said: "Back in the dog collar, back in Dibley and back on your telly at Xmas. I couldn't be happier. Bless you."
BBC Producers commented: "Geraldine will be helped by Hugo as well some of the local primary school children as the vicar discusses all the important topics, including how it's never a good idea to let Owen Newitt cut your hair, or make home-made wine. The very dearly departed Alice Tinker is also still an important presence in the village, with some residents still looking for lost buttons and the arrival of decimalisation."
