Scottish comedian Jack Docherty will also feature in the six-part series, described as a "fantastic, throwback style comedy".

Badults follows Tom, Ben and Matthew - three flatmates who are struggling to adapt to adult life, launching a series of crazy schemes including transforming their flat into a restaurant, getting a new dance anthem in the charts and re-enacting the French Revolution.

The show will star three-man comedy act Pappy's - composed of comedians Ben Clark, Matthew Crosby and Tom Parry - who are known for their live shows and award-winning podcast.

In a joint statement, the trio said: "Having spent ten years on the live circuit, this is an absolute dream come true for us. We wanted to create a TV show that transformed our live, stage work as Pappy's into a sitcom with very much the same silly, old school studio sitcom style.

"We are thrilled to have worked with such an impressive team at Comedy Unit and BBC Three, who got our sense of humour straight away and have had faith in us every step of the way."
