Pants! Bottom reunion called off

Ade can't be arsed...

A planned follow-up to Bottom has been shelved, Adrian Edmondson has revealed.

In August, the BBC said they were working on a six-part series based on their 1997 live show, Hooligan's Island.

However, Edmondson said that when he got back together with Rik Mayll to work on the show, he realised why they stropped working together.

He told BBC Radio Essex: ‘There isn't a Bottom series four. There isn't anything.

‘We started working on something and we realised why we stopped working together. It wasn't working.’

The 55-yar-old added: ‘I'm aware that people think comedy's easy to do and write and everything, and it relatively is to be honest. But once you get to a certain age you want to do things you really enjoy, not just things you can do.’

Edmondson will net month be touring with pub rockers The Idiot Bastard Band, alongside Neil Innes, Phill Jupitus and Rowland Rivron.
