Dawn French is reprising Vicar Geraldine Grainger for a run of short episodes at Christmas.

Three 10-minute Vicar Of Dibley In Lockdown episodes will air in the UK flanked by a half-hour compilation episode.

During lockdown, post-lockdown and pre-another-lockdown, Geraldine has been writing and delivering monthly sermons to her parishioners via Zoom – when she can make it work.

“Back in the dog collar, back in Dibley and back on your telly at Xmas. I couldn’t be happier. Bless you,” French said of the specials.

Writer Richard Curtis added, “Like every village in the country, there’s been a lot happening in Dibley this year – and Dawn has got a lot to say about it.”

It’s unclear if ABC will pick it up for Australian audiences.
