'Thick of It' may have more specials, reveals Rebecca Front

By
Rebecca Front revealed to Digital Spy at the British Comedy Awards that she is still optimistic that The Thick of It hasn't ended forever.

The political satire, created by Armando Iannucci, bowed out with a fourth series earlier this year.

Front, who played Rt Hon Nicola Murray MP in the show, said that she was still badgering Iannucci to make some more specials for the show.

"I will always ask Armando to make more and I'll keep asking him, but he is very busy with Veep at the moment," she said.

"However, he was very clever in the way he said that the show was ending. He said that there wouldn't be another 'series'. The word 'series' is key there... I'd love to do another special in the future."

Speaking about the show's ending earlier this year, Iannucci said: "It's definitely the last series." Meanwhile, writer Sean Gray said: "It's a shame to stop, but it also makes sense because hopefully we haven't outstayed our welcome."

Front and fellow Thick of It star Peter Capaldi both picked up 'Best Actor' and 'Best Actress' gongs at the British Comedy Awards yesterday.
