AN award-winning BBC sitcom with a beloved star is returning to screens next month.
Lee Mack’s Not Going Out will finally return to the broadcaster after more than a year off screens.
The show has followed layabout Lee’s misadventures since 2006 and has hit peaks of over six millions viewers.
Fans will be delighted to learn that brand new episodes will begin on BBC One on Friday, June 23rd.
However, it could prove to be the last ever series of the beloved programme.
Comedian Lee, 54, previously revealed to UK Times how its future is very much in doubt.
He said: “We’ll have reached 100 episodes by the time we’ve finished this latest series and – as I am quite obsessive about numbers – that could be a nice, round number to end on.
“Either that or we go on until we’ve reached 200!”
The programme’s long haul makes it second to only Last Of The Summer Wine, which went on for 295 episodes.
Over the years it has starred everyone from Hugh Dennis and Megan Dodds to Miranda Hart, Tim Vine and Bobby Ball.
Reflecting on its success in 2018, Lee said: “Everyone told me that British sitcom was dead.
“Then I looked at Seinfeld and Frasier and thought, ‘No it’s not, it just needs more gags.’”
