Royle Family actors Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash will reveal the secrets of the UK’s favourite couch-loving family in two TV specials about the acclaimed BBC1
sitcom for digital channel Gold.
Aherne and Cash, who wrote and starred in the Royle Family, will go behind the scenes of the comedy in Royle Family: Behind the Sofa, and will pick their favourite moments from the show’s three series and five specials in Royle Family Portraits.
Gold previously reunited the stars of Fawlty Towers for a retrospective about the classic John Cleese comedy.
The Royle Family, which debuted on BBC1 in 1998, showed its enduring appeal with a Christmas special last year that was watched by more than 10 million viewers, making it the second most watched programme of the festive period.
Royle Family: Behind the Scenes will feature interviews with the cast as well as fans including Catherine Tate, Paul Whitehouse, Willy Russell, Jimmy McGovern and Henry Normal, who co-wrote the first series.
Both shows will be produced by Jellylegs TV and will broadcast next month [NOV].
