E4 is reportedly developing a new sitcom.

Sex And The Chippy has been described as a female version of The Inbetweeners, Broadcast reports.

The series focuses on a group of women in their early thirties talking about their nights out in a Liverpool chip shop.

The project will be directed by Inbetweeners helmer Ben Palmer and has been penned by Hollyoaks writers Heather Robson and Neil Jones.

Channel 4's head of comedy Shane Allen described it as "glossy, raucous, upbeat and entertaining" and added: "We're delighted with the script. It's bursting with great banter and some truly jaw-dropping set pieces. It's so good to be getting behind something female, funny and young for E4 to complement The Inbetweeners."

Filming for a pilot is expected to begin in September and the show is scheduled to air next year.
