Melissa McCarthy has revealed she "wouldn't want to" appear in a Bridesmaids sequel without Kristen Wiig.

Kristen, who starred in last year's hugely successful comedy, which she co-wrote with Annie Mumolo, has said that a follow-up isn't on the cards, but Universal studios are apparently willing to go ahead without her.

However, Melissa - who won a number of critics awards for her performance as tomboy Megan in the hit movie - admitted her doubts about a potential sequel without Kristen, telling E! News: "I think it's a terrible idea."

She added her hesitations about signing up without Kristen, but admitted she would follow co-stars Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper.

"I wouldn't want to. I would never want to," she said, adding: "I know that nobody wants to do it unless it's great. If it is, I will show up wherever those ladies are."
