Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer’s return for another Big Night Out will air over Christmas, it has been revealed.

The one-off special, a “re-imagining” of the original, will air on BBC2 on December 29.

Vic Reeves Big Night Out introduced viewers to Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer when it transferred to TV in 1990 from its beginnings as a stage show.

The new show, Vic & Bob’s Big Night Out, will feature new characters, cameo appearances, songs, skits and stunts performed in front of a studio audience.

When the return was announced earlier this year, the comedy duo 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.”

Vic & Bob’s Big Night Out is on BBC2 on December 29 at 9pm.
