'The Vicar of Dibley' landed on Netflix less than a couple of weeks ago, much to the delight of fans.

Many are re-watching the sitcom while others are checking it out for the first time. In either case, all should be excited that The Vicar of Dibley, aka Geraldine Granger, is returning to the small screen.

Dawn French, the actress behind the TV icon, announced the news on Twitter.

She shared a close-up picture of the familiar costume with the caption: "Hmmm. Somethin interestin this way comes...."


In a further statement, she added: "I'm back in the dog collar, back in the vicarage, and back on your telly as part of 'The Big Night In'. Be there, or go to hell. Literally. I have some sway."

Yup, the Vicar will be making a special appearance this week on BBC One's 'Big Night In' telethon.

The one-off special will see Comic Relief and Children in Need unite for the first time to raise money for healthcare workers, charities and local organisations and communities.

'Little Britain' will also be taking a curtain call for the TV event as David Walliams and Matt Lucas bring back the comedy sketch series for the first time in a decade.

Peter Kay, Gary Barlow, Catherine Tate, Sir Lenny Henry, Top Gear's Paddy McGuinness, Matt Baker, and Davina McCall are also involved.

'The Big Night In' will air live on Thursday, April 23 from 7pm-10pm on BBC One and on iPlayer.
