Fast Show team reunite for Gold

The cast of The Fast Show are reuniting for a belated 25th anniversary celebration.

Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson, Arabella Weir, John Thomson, Simon Day and Mark Williams will be interviewed about the classic sketch sketch show for a two-hour special on the Gold channel.

And they will also be talking in character,  as the likes of Swiss Toni, Dave Angel, Jesse, No Offence, Professor Denzil Dexter and Rowley Birkin QC.

In a statement, creators Whitehouse and Higson said: “It’s 26 years since the first episode of The Fast Show went out. We didn’t manage to celebrate our 25th anniversary but we are marking it now.

“All the (remaining) contributors will be reflecting on their favourite bits and some of the characters will also be looking back at their time on the show.”

The Fast Show originally ran from 1994 to 1997, with a special in 2000, starting on BBC Two before moving to BBC One.

The retrospective, subtitled  Just A Load Of Blooming Catchphrases will air on Gold later this year.
