Remember this came up in conversation last August? Well, it's still going ahead and they've padded out the cast list a bit.

Sue Perkins will still star as Sarah, the 40-year-old lesbian who's yet to come out to her parents. To help her reach that precipice, her friends have given her a handy ultimatum - tell your parents by your birthday or we will.

Among the cast include - yes - Mel Giedroyc, because one can barely function without the other. Also rumoured to be joining are EastEnders' Dot Cotton (AKA June Brown), Dawn French, Jeff Rawle off Hollyoaks, and Steve Pemberton of League of Gentlemen / Psychoville fame.

Speaking of Dawn French, she could be reprising her Vicar of Dibley roll - if the Church of England start to ordain female bishops - which they could do by next month if the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has anything to do with it.

According to "French revealed on ITV’s Daybreak that the sitcom set is still in storage, and could be retrieved if the show makes a comeback if her character Geraldine is promoted. She said writer Richard Curtis announced the end of the show only to stop speculation - but suggested he secretly had plans for a revival. French said: 'We had 13 happy years. When we got to the end I said to Richard, "You have to say it’s finished because people keep asking about it." So he said, "OK, it’s finished." We had the wrap party, we had a few tears and on the way out, the producer said to me, "He’s asked us to store the set." I think he’s probably waiting for women to be officially made bishops'."
