Doctor Who star Catherine Tate is bringing Britain’s best-loved OAP back to BBC One, following the success of last year’s one-off special.

Two new half-hour episodes, written by Catherine Tate, Brett Goldstein and Dan Swimer, will be filmed later this year and will air on BBC One in 2016.

The character originally appeared in BBC One’s The Catherine Tate Show in 2004.

Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning, commented: “Nan is one of the most iconic comedy characters of our time and it’s thrilling to welcome her back to BBC One. Catherine’s performance is as close to comic perfection as you can get.”
