A British report that sitcom Still Open All Hours has been axed by the BBC has been denied.
The follow up to the hit Ronnie Barker sitcom last screened in 2019, with the Daily Star claiming plans for more had been scrapped.
It even quoted star David Jason saying, “It’s a shame. There was an audience who loved it and we enjoyed bringing the madness of the characters to the screen.”
He indicated the writers planned to make one last series to bring “all the stories” to a natural conclusion.
But a BBC spokesperson told
“‘There is no truth in this and discussions on future episodes are ongoing,” they said.
“The safety and wellbeing of all those involved in Still Open All Hours is our number one priority, and we have been unable to film this year due to COVID-19.”
Still Open All Hours, which also features James Baxter, airs in Australia on ABC.
