The sitcom's first live show was screened in the summer of 2016, and Brendan has expressed his excitement at bringing it back for Halloween.

He said: "It’s a huge thrill to do another ‘live’ show for the BBC. It’ll be so wonderful to see them nervous all over again.

"We will be trying our best to stick to the script, but honestly a script is just a guideline. Bring it on."
