'Birds of a Feather' Pauline Quirke: 'No BBC approach about reunion'

By
The Birds of a Feather cast have revealed that they want the BBC to revive the '90s sitcom.

Speaking on today's This Morning, Pauline Quirke - who played Sharon - said that they are yet to be approached by the BBC for a new series.

When asked about the chances of new episodes, she sighed: "Yeah..." before adding: "The BBC have never approached us."

Birds of a Feather Cast: Pauline Quirke, Lesley Joseph and Linda Robson


Tracey actress Linda Robson said: "Fingers crossed, that'd be lovely!", before Lesley Joseph added, "We'd love to do it".

Host Phillip Schofield then suggested: "Listen, if the BBC don't do it then bring it to ITV! Do it here!"

Birds of a Feather, which ran to regular audiences of over 15 million on BBC One between 1989 and 1998, will return for a stage show in March with the original cast.

Written by original creators Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the show will tour for 17 weeks.

Speaking about the tour, Robson admitted: "We worried about the script - we got a script through that we weren't really happy with.

"Then we got the original writers back on board and they came up with a fantastic script."
