Small ambition

Ronnie eyes sitcom return

Ronnie Corbett wants to make a return to sitcom.

But he says one thing that's stopping him is the lack of a decent script.

The 72-year-old starred in Sorry! for seven years in the Eighties, and is keen to get back onto TV.

He told actors' newspaper The Stage: "I haven't, as yet, read anything that excites me, but I am still looking.

"I think people write things too quickly, and there are not enough writers who rewrite until they get something good."

Corbett said he would commission something himself if he read the right script.
