Twenty Twelve will have two more series before the summer Olympics in London.

The show, which won 'Best Sitcom' at the British Comedy Awards, spoofs the preparations for the Games.

Speaking at the awards, a show spokesperson said: "Believe it or not there's a deadline, so we've got one series in February and another just before the games.

"A show like this really, really needs an award, because no-one really knows what it is. It goes out on BBC Four to a very appreciative audience, but a small one. Hopefully it'll pick up a bigger audience for series two."

Olivia Colman, who plays PA Sally Owen in the show, said she felt good to be back in comedy after working on Paddy Considine-directed film Tyrannosaur, saying: "That's been the last two years in my head. I'm a right miserable old cow now. Tyrannosaur was sort of like my soul food, but comedy is what I know and it's lovely."
