Outnumbered is likely to return to BBC One for a full fifth series, it has been announced.

Tyger Drew-Honey, who plays Jake in the sitcom, recently suggested that it might only return for one-off special episodes.

However, BBC Television's Head of Communications Sam Hodges has refuted the rumours on Twitter

"Outnumbered fans - contrary to reports, talks are already under way regarding a new series on BBC One," he said.

Centred around the Brockman family, Outnumbered follows parents Pete (Hugh Dennis) and Sue (Claire Skinner) as they struggle to control their unruly children Jake, Ben (Daniel Roche) and Karen (Ramona Marquez).

Last year, Fox began developing a US remake of the series, with Ugly Betty's Ana Ortiz and theatre actor Cliff Chamberlain signing up to star.

The most recent episode of the original Outnumbered aired on Christmas Eve on BBC One, attracting over 8m viewers.
