Neil Morrissey has said that the cast of hit ’90s comedy Men Behaving Badly are all willing to take part in a reunion series – but are just in need of a script.
The show, which starred Morrissey alongside Martin Clunes, Leslie Ash and Caroline Quentin, followed the misadventures of Gary and Tony as they shared a flat together. It chimed in with the ‘lad culture’ of the age and ran for six series and two specials between 1992 and 1998.
Now, Neil Morrissey has spoken out on the likelihood of the show making a comeback, telling ITV’s Lorraine that there could be “if there’s a script – because in my game everything starts with a script – and if the script’s good… because Martin and I and Caroline and Leslie have all said of course we’ll do it.”
He added: ‘So we need to get Simon Nye, nail him down and get him to write a series. Get him on!”
Speaking back in February, co-star Caroline Quentin told TV Times: “I’d be up for a revival now because enough time has passed,” Caroline told TV Times: “Previously, I wasn’t interested. Now it could be fascinating to see what’s happened to all the characters 20 years on. Although it is frightening it was 20 years ago!”
Men Behaving Badly previously returned in 2014 for one-off sketch for Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer, while a failed US remake of the show was cancelled in the ’90s after two seasons.
