Armando Iannucci, who's Veep (starring Julia Louis Dreyfus) starts on Sky Atlantic on Monday (June 25th at 10.00pm) has announced that The Leveson Inquiry will make an appearance on The Thick Of It.

Speaking with journalists at a recent screening of Veep, Iannucci said:

"There's a new government, it's in coalition, our previous cast are in opposition and we go backwards and forwards between the two. There's more of a story arc to it now, even though each episode is self-contained, and in the last three episodes everything comes together."

Of the inclusion of The Leveson dealy, he added that" major inquiry will feature quite heavily... It is interesting watching them all swear an oath and then saying what they say."
