As you may already have heard, John Cleese is planning to revive 'Fawlty Towers' for the modern era.

The comedy show, which ran for two series in 1975 and 1979, is regularly cited as one of the best of all time. However, it seems that Cleese - its star and writer - is not one for sacred cows.

The 83-year-old Monty Python actor plans to revive the concept of Basil Fawlty - the Torquay hotelier with a disastrous line in management skills - and will write and star in the new updated version with his daughter, Camilla Cleese.

Having just discovered that he has fathered a daughter, the show will see the pair team up to run a boutique hotel together while navigating the trials and tribulations of modern society.

News of the revival has divided opinion on social media; some people think that the classic show should not be touched, while others look forward to seeing what the increasingly cantankerous Cleese will bring to a show set in the modern era.
