Little Crackers will return for a second series this Christmas, Sky1 has announced.

The first series of the show featured autobiographical tales from stars such as Stephen Fry, Victoria Wood and Chris O'Dowd.

Catherine Tate's episode in the series ended up being nominated for a BAFTA for 'Best Comedy Programme'.

Sky1 has now revealed that a number of comedians will take part in the second series, which will have the theme, 'The First Time I...'

Alan Davies, Shappi Khorsandi and John Bishop have already signed up to work on the show alongside Sanjeev Bhaskar and Jane Horrocks. Further names are expected to be announced.

Sky's head of comedy Lucy Lumsden said: "Last year Little Crackers was a fantastic success for Sky1 HD, bringing some of the biggest and best names in British comedy to the channel.

"But there were always more names that I wanted to be a part of the show, and I'm delighted to have secured such brilliant comedians for the second series."

Sky has recently increased its investment in original comedy, with new show Trollied beginning on Sky1 next week.

Mount Pleasant, Spy, The Cafe, Gates, The Starlings and Sky Atlantic's This Is Jinsy are among other shows in the works.
