INSIDE THE GENTS

The charming actors behind the hit comedy The League Of Gentlemen have made the Bitches a most ungentlemanly offer.

Wickedly funny trio Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton and Mark Gatiss were chuffed to know that we just love their surreal sense of humour. Sipping cocktails in London's oh-so-exclusive Atlantic Bar, Bitches' Amy and Niki just had to tell them what massive fans we all are, and the boys couldn't resist letting us in on plans for a third series of their hilarious black comedy.

Steve, who plays loony local shopkeeper's wife Tubbs - but honestly looks much better in real life - revealed: "We are hoping to start filming the third series in February." And it looks like our dreams will come true with a special cameo appearance. As Steve said: "We're planning an orgy scene around Alvin The Reluctant swinger which you could be in. It could be very interesting. So we're set to follow in the footsteps of Liza Tarbuck - the only celebrity lucky enough to have bagged a guest appearance on the cult show. "It's amazing to be involved with something so successful," Steve continued.

And it's nice to see the friendly trio haven't let fame go to their heads, too. Reece added: "Sometimes I just can't help bursting into laughter when we're filming. We really enjoy it."

Well, so do we boys.
