Come Fly With Me 2 cleared for take-off

BBC commissions second series

Matt Lucas and David Walliams are to make a second series of Come Fly With Me.

The BBC has commissioned a new run, which is expected to be made later this year. However, they cannot say exactly when it will be ready ‘as Matt & David have to fulfill a variety of commitments first’.

Come Fly With Me was the most-watched comedy of 2010, with 12.4 million viewers on Christmas Day. The series ended this week with 6.1million.

BBC One controller Danny Cohen said: ‘It has been a huge hit with audiences. I can't wait to see what Matt and David will do with the second series.’
