George Dawes returns
16:30 24 August 2005
'Little Britain' star Matt Lucas is returning to 'Shooting Stars'.
The bald-headed funnyman will don his giant baby romper once again to play George Dawes in the new series of the celebrity quiz show.
The show's host Vic Reeves, who fronts the comedy quiz with Bob Mortimer, revealed to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "We want to bring 'Shooting Stars' back and we're talking to the BBC. Matt will definitely be George Dawes. We can't do the show without him."
Vic did not reveal whether show regulars Johnny Vegas and Ulrika Jonsson - called 'Ulrika-ka-ka' by Vic and Bob - will also be making a reappearance.
Since first appearing on 'Shooting Stars', Matt has gone on to find success with 'Little Britain', which co-stars David Walliams.
In the hit BBC comedy, Matt plays Fat Fighters mentor Marjorie Dawes - George's mother - who has appeared on 'Shooting Stars' several times herself.
