They originally appeared in The Kumars at No. 42 between 2001 and 2006 on BBC Two and later on BBC One, in a run totalling 53 episodes.

Stars Sanjeev Bhaskar (Sanjeev), Meera Syal (Ummi), Indira Joshi (Madhuri) and Vincent Ebrahim (Ashwin) have all reunited for the show.

Bhaskar commented: "It's incredibly exciting to revisit these warm, oddball characters and to be given the opportunity to bring them up to date.

"We've tried to retain what viewers loved about the original show and to inject new characters and elements in a slightly new format that we hope will appeal to an even broader audience."
