'YOUNG ONES' STARS PLANNING NEW SITCOM

Digital Spy, 7th April 2011

Adrian Edmondson and Rik Mayall have revealed that they are planning a sitcom about pensioners.

The duo, who worked on The Young Ones and Bottom together, recently appeared on Let's Dance For Comic Relief.

The Sun reports that the pair are now thinking about developing a new show.

"Rik and I have an idea for a sitcom for when we are very, very old," Edmondson said. "We want to set it in an old people's home 30 years hence. It will be like Bottom, but we will be hitting each other with colostomy bags."

Meanwhile, a source claimed that television executives are interested in the concept, saying: "It's a genius idea to have Rik and Ade playing anarchic old fogeys. Fans and telly bosses would love to get [Young Ones stars] Nigel [Planer] and Christopher [Ryan] involved too, but they could need persuading."

Last year, Edmondson admitted that he is not particularly interested in continuing his comedy career.
