Talking about his imminent return, he said, "I can't wait to be back in Grandad's armchair next year after a bit of a break - many thanks to Les Dennis who's been keeping it warm for me! It's incredible to still be playing to packed houses week in, week out and I'm thrilled that the show is extending the run yet again. Mange tout!"
