Little Britain USA is set to return for a second series, despite the first series being panned by many critics on both sides of the pond.

The show hit the headlines in the US for its racy content – but Matt Lucas told BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat that it had not caused any controversy.

“I don’t think it really did,” he said, adding that HBO, the channel for whom they made the series, were very happy with the end result.

“It was very successful on HBO,” his co-star David Walliams added, “It got good viewing figures, great reviews, everyone was really pleased.”

“We’re delighted, we’re very proud of it.”

However, he did admit they had pushed the boundaries of taste with some of the material.

“It has some of our most outrageous things in it,” Walliams said, “it’s not for everybody but we thought it was funny.”

“We’re always trying to entertain people, not offend them, and I think if it’s not your cup of tea, don’t watch it.”
