CULT TV show The League Of Gentlemen could be set for a comeback.

Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the comedy troupe, whose surreal and acclaimed off-the-wall show began on stage before moving to radio and then TV.

Set in the fictional Northern village of Royston Vasey, the dark series was created by Sedgefield-born Mark Gatiss, who grew up in School Aycliffe, County Durham, together with his comedy partners Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson.

Asked whether a reunion was on the cards, Shearsmith told Radio Times magazine: "I think we will do something again.

"We've started to talk about a thing. It might not be Royston Vasey, but just collaborating again would be great."

The BBC series ended in 2002 and a movie version hit the big-screen in 2005.

There have previously been rumours that the show could return.
