The BBC have revealed that Catherine Tate’s famous nan character is set to return, with two half-hour episodes of her own show.

Joannie ‘Nan’ Taylor will be back on our screens in 2016, and the shows will follow on from her 2014 one-off special.

She's coming ba-ack!

The foul-mouthed oldie delighted fans on ‘The Catherine Tate Show’, and the Beeb have shared their excitement ahead of her comeback.

“Nan is one of the most iconic comedy characters of our time and it’s thrilling to welcome her back to BBC1,” a statement read. “Catherine’s performance is as close to comic perfection as you can get.”

Nan’s “what a f**king liberty” catchphrase and rants - aimed at her grandson, played by Matthew Horne - never failed to raise a few laughs.

The character also popped up in a number of other places, including Holby City’s hospital ward, for a Children In Need sketch.
