'Father Ted meets Men Behaving Badly'

Gavin and Stacey star James Corden is to appear in a new BBC Two sitcom dubbed ‘Father Ted meets Men Behaving Badly’.

In the show, Hey Hey We're The Monks, Cordon plays jobless 31-year-old layabout who gets an unlikely job in a monastery.

The show also stars Fergus Craig, Justin Edwards and Geoffrey Whitehead, and has been written by Dan Tetsell and Danny Robins.

A pilot records in London next month, and free tickets are available here.

A BBC spokesman said: ‘Hey Hey We’re The Monks is a classic British sitcom with great characters, free-flowing laughter on tap and a cracking ensemble cast.’
