Hit sitcom Miranda is celebrating its tenth birthday in 2019, with a one off entertainment special at The London Palladium.
Miranda: My Such Fun Celebration will deliver a night of laughter and nostalgia as the cast look back on a decade of Miranda Hart’s hugely popular comedy.
She has previously told fans that she’d opted for a live show rather than the traditional episode format.
Miranda herself said of the night: “What happened with my sitcom and comedy alter ego over the last ten years has been unexpected to say the least, so it’s very moving for me to have the chance to celebrate and thank my cast and the fans from the Palladium stage.
“We are hoping to put together a what I call such fun hour of television for them all.”
Director of BBC Content Charlotte Moore gushed about the sitcom and promised that fans wouldn’t be short changed by the anniversary show.
She said: “Miranda is one of the great British sitcoms so to celebrate its tenth anniversary, this BBC One special promises an hour of pure, unadulterated fun from the home of entertainment itself, the London Palladium.”
Will MacDonald, Executive Producer at Monkey Kingdom, an independent production company, said: “Like Miranda, we’re falling over ourselves with excitement to help put together a fabulously deserved celebration of the utter joy she and the show have brought millions of people of all ages for the past decade.”
Actress Sarah Hadland, who plays Miranda’s best mate on the show, previously shared her excitement at making it to ten years on the air.
Sarah told: “It’s quite a big milestone, we’re all quite shocked.
“We’re hopeful that Miranda will make some more.
“It was the show that made Miranda a star and is close to her heart. She is passionate about the cast and has spent months organising their schedules so they are all in the same country.”
Miranda had also put out a tweet over the summer with some barebones plans: “10! And we decided to have a party (not a new episode).
“The Miranda cast on and off screen are all about play, being free to be ourselves and silliness, so we are amazed and delighted that BBC One have agreed that our celebrations will be recorded as a one hour special later in the year.”
