UK comedy Birds of a Feather is to have an hour long Christmas special with its first overseas location-based Christmas special in nearly 20 years.
Pauline Quirke, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph will return as the original Essex girls on an adventure that takes them to sunnier places they’ve never been before. While previous Christmas special locations have included USA, Berlin and Ireland, producers are staying silent on the next destination (Australia?).
Show creators, Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran said “We’re delighted and excited to be embarking on a new adventure with these three incomparable characters. We don’t want to give away too many secrets, but we promise the ITV audience a rollicking Christmas adventure.”
Pauline Quirke said “Us birds all together abroad can only mean one thing – mayhem! I’m really looking forward to filming this feature length Christmas special with the ladies.”
Linda Robson said “Thank God it’s official, us birds are all going to be doing an hour long Christmas special not in Essex but we’re filming abroad for the first time in nearly 20 years. I’m so excited, the story line is brilliant and we’re all so looking forward to Shal, Trace and Dor going on an amazing adventure.”
Lesley Joseph said “I’m very excited to be flying abroad again with the birds for a Christmas special. I can only imagine the capers we’re going to get up to, I can’t wait to put the nails back on and create havoc wherever we land. Seriously though, I couldn’t be more happier to be working with two of my favourite people in the whole world.”
