The Vicar of Dibley to return to BBC One this Christmas

Classic BBC comedy The Vicar of Dibley is returning to BBC One for three special episodes this Christmas.

The BBC say “Dawn French is to reprise her much-loved role as the nation’s favourite Vicar, Geraldine Grainger of the Parish of Dibley, for The Vicar Of Dibley In Lockdown to mark the end of this extraordinary year.

“During lockdown, post-lockdown and pre-another-lockdown, Geraldine has been writing and delivering monthly sermons to her parishioners via Zoom… when she can make it work. These new thoughts on life (and chocolate) will air after repeat showings of classic episodes of the multi-award winning The Vicar Of Dibley, this Christmas on BBC One.”

Dawn French says: “Back in the dog collar, back in Dibley and back on your telly at Xmas. I couldn’t be happier. Bless you.”

Writer Richard Curtis comments: “Like every village in the country, there’s been a lot happening in Dibley this year – and Dawn has got a lot to say about it.”

Each episode will be ten minutes long.
