BBC renews Vic And Bob's House Of Fools

Hooray! Vic and Bob sitcom House Of Fools will be returning for a second series...

They made us wait a little for the news, but the BBC has finally done the right thing by Vic and Bob's House Of Fools and commissioned a second series. Six episodes of the surprising, inventive and supremely silly comedy aired on BBC Two earlier this year, with a regular cast including Dan Skinner, Morgana Robinson, Matt Berry and Daniel Simonsen.

The series takes place in Bob's titular house, shared by his Norwegian son Erik (Simonsen), Vic, and Vic's ex-con brother Bosh (Skinner). Nextdoor is the lascivious Julie (Robinson), and regular visitor Beef (Berry). The first series was a comedy that, once you relaxed into its songs, cutaways and colourful antics, was capable of cheering up even the grumpiest of Tuesdays. Hooray for its return.

Bob Mortimer made the announcement on Twitter this morning, in between giving advice on onion placement in vegetable arrangements, divining very specific horoscopes and generally being a flipping delight.
