The BBC has confirmed the return date for Inside No 9.

Guest stars for the opening episode are  Kevin Bishop, Paterson Joseph and Gemma Whelan.

The  news comes as the show has today been nominated for the Bafta for best scripted comedy this year, with   Shearsmith shortlisted for best performance.

Other famous names joining the six-part series six include Fleabag star Sian Clifford; Line Of Duty's Adrian Dunbar, Sir Derek Jacobi and Nick Mohammed.
