Will there be a Mumsie??? Noone has asked that yet??? !
Err. Did you not watch the special last year, and spot the character played by Maureen Lipman, then?
Maybe the reason why no-one has asked about Mumsie, was the new incarnation was right in front of the viewers..
Yes, course I watched the special!!! Yes there was a new Mumsie - Stephen Merchant did state that she wasn't really his Mum - just some woman they'd found routing around the bins outside. In which case, she could play Mumsie in the new series with Richard Ayoyade, as there is no connection. I hope she does return, or whether they will bring in a new character for Ayoyade to jest with? She would be a perfect nod to the past!!
