Dawn French is following in the footsteps of Ricky Gervais, returning with a one off comeback as the Vicar of Dibley, for Comic Relief.

Featuring Homeland star Damien Lewis as a man of the cloth, Dawn French will revive her role of Geraldine Granger, reuniting with the original cast for the first time in seven years.
