GOLD TO CELEBRATE THE VICAR OF DIBLEY IN NEW DOCUMENTARY

UKTV's comedy channel Gold have announced a 2 hour documentary celebrating The Vicar of Dibley.


The Vicar of Dibley: Inside Out will take viewers on a joyous trip down memory lane and reveal what went on behind the scenes of the highly successful sitcom and share exclusive, never-before seen footage from rehearsals.

Dawn French and Richard Curtis will be joined by writer Paul Mayhew-Archer, producer Jon Plowman, James Fleet (who played Hugo Horton) and guest stars including Kylie, Hugh Bonneville, Joanna Lumley and many more, as they lovingly look back at their favourite Dibley moments.

Dawn French, who played Geraldine Granger in The Vicar of Dibley, said: "It was a total treat to revisit such a happy place and time for this documentary. Part of my heart is still, and forever will be in Dibley."

Executive producer of The Vicar of Dibley: Inside Out is Jon Plowman, who was also the producer of The Vicar of Dibley. Jon said: "I feel incredibly proud to have been involved with Dibley and am thrilled that it's still making audiences laugh (and occasionally cry) more than 25 years later. It's been a total joy to look back through the Dibley archives and to be reminded of old friends and so many wonderful moments. It looks to me like we were all having far too much fun. Quite how we got anything done is beyond me."

Gerald Casey, channel director for Gold, added: "The Vicar of Dibley is a firm favourite for Gold viewers and includes so many brilliantly memorable scenes that never fail to entertain. We're thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate this much-loved series and hear anecdotes from the wonderful cast and crew."

The Vicar of Dibley: Inside Out will air later this year on Gold.
