Wix recently told Digital Spy that the other cast members "did everything to persuade" Vine to return, but said that the comic had "his reasons" for moving on.

Bobby Ball will make another appearance in the new series of Not Going Out as Lee's trouble-making father, while other storylines will include a jealous Lee fighting for Lucy's attention when she reunites with her first love, and Lee, Lucy and Daisy getting stuck in a cable car on an Eastern European skiing trip.

Not Going Out was originally cancelled after three years, but was later revived by the BBC, with a fifth and sixth series being ordered together after a fourth run attracted impressive ratings.

"The BBC could not be any more supportive of the show - the current regime," Lee Mack told DS last year. "I mean, [BBC's controller of comedy commissioning] Cheryl Taylor and [BBC One controller] Danny Cohen have totally, unashamedly gone, 'We like the show - we're gonna do it', and I love that."

Not Going Out returns to BBC One on Friday, April 5.
