MOCKUMENTARY Come Fly With Me has been recommissioned for a second series by the BBC.
Matt Lucas and David Walliams’ comedy series was the second highest performing show over Christmas, pulling in more than 12 million viewers.
Set in a busy airport, the show saw co-creators Lucas and Walliams playing all the regular characters but included guest appearances from the likes of former Friends star David Schwimmer and Rupert Grint.
Just under nine million viewers tuned in for the New Year’s Day episode, while the first episode has now been watched by more than 17 million viewers across all platforms, according to the BBC.
Although no air date has yet been announced for the second series, BBC 1 controller Danny Cohen said: “Come Fly With Me has been a huge hit with audiences. I can’t wait to see what Matt and David will do with the second series.”
