However, Geraldine’s not going to let her parishioners go without her regular sermons; only this time around it’s going to be via Zoom (if she can get it to work!)

Fans of the Vicar of Dibley will be overjoyed at the return of their favourite program. This time around we can look forward to loads of laughs from the 3×10′ minute episodes which will air weekly, plus a 30′ minute compilation episode of all three sermons which will air later over Christmas.

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.”

Richard Curtis says:“ 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.”

Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning for the BBC, says: “This triple festive treat from the nations favourite fun-loving vicar is the warm comedy hug we’ve all missed.”

We’ve all missed our favourite fun loving vicar. Will you be counting down the days to watch this triple festive feast of fun?
