Dawn French has revealed we're going to be getting a Vicar Of Dibley Christmas special.

The show returned from a five year hiatus back in April, as part of BBC's charity night, Big Night In.

But now Dawn's confirmed we're getting two helpings in a year - and it's exactly the news we need in 2020!

The Vicar Of Dibley is back for Christmas (

Speaking to, Dawn - who plays Vicar Geraldine in the infamous BBC sitcom - was quizzed on what she saw ahead for the future of the show.

And she dropped the huge bombshell that we wouldn't have to wait very long to see Geraldine and co. back on our screens.

She said: "I don't think I'd do a film, although I'd never rule out anything, but there is a little something coming for Christmas. It's gorgeous, and I can't tell you any more than that, sadly.

"Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer [the show's writers] have written a little something that will be just before Christmas, hopefully."

The Vicar Of Dibley has been a firm fan favourite ever since it landed on the BBC back in 1994 - running until 2000.

The show has returned for a few one off episodes ever since, making comebacks for Comic Relief and in honour of the show's 10th and 20th anniversaries.

And since it dropped on Netflix earlier this year it picked up a whole new batch of younger fans, who are now equally in love with Geraldine and her community.

Fans will be excited to see the show return (

While the new episode is sure to be a massive hit, it comes tainted with sadness, as two key characters have passed away in recent years.

Geraldine's best friend and right hand woman, Alice, will be sorely missed following actress Emma Chambers' death in 2018. Plus, John Bluthal, who played Frank, is tragically also no longer with us.

We'll update you on the Christmas special as soon as we know more!
