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.
