Get ready to shout "What's on the end of the stick, Vic?" because BBC Two is reviving Vic Reeves Big Night Out for one night only.

Vic & Bob's Big Night Out will be a "reimagining" of the original show, which was first broadcast in 1990.

Reeves and Mortimer said: "This is the show we wanted to perform back in the 1980s". "Now the time is right".

They joked: "We will be increasing our respective heights in order to perform some of the more intricate and challenging moments". Now that's commitment to your art.

The one-off half-hour show will feature both old and new characters, with sketches, songs, skits and stunts.

And while you're at it BBC Two, you couldn't see your way to renewing House Of Fools for another ten series could you? Ta.

BBC controller of comedy commissioning Shane Allen said: "In this special, Vic and Bob go back to their live stage show roots to mark three decades as the most pioneering, surreal and unique pairing in British comedy".

The news may come as a surprise to fans as last month the pair teased they were working on a "low-quality" show for the BBC that would be like "nothing" they've ever done before. The producer is Lisa Clark, the executive producer is Chris Sussman, the studio director is Mat Whitecross (Oasis: Supersonic, Spike Island).
