Harry Hill fans are in for a treat

Harry Hill is making a new BBC sitcom pilot with Absolutely Fabulous actress Jennifer Saunders playing his mother.

The 53-year-old comedian is shooting an episode of the comedy next month at the legendary Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.

The pilot, which will presumably be turned into a full TV series if it proves popular, is being billed as a “not to be missed” sitcom.

Harry Hill fans can apparently “expect the unexpected” in a “brilliantly mad story” straight from Harry’s mind.

Currently titled the Harry Hill sitcom, it promises to feature an all-star cast. So expect more big names to come.
