Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French in Five Go to RehabWe can’t believe it’s been 30 years since The Comic Strip Presents first appeared on our screens.

Now, the infamous five return for a sequel to the 1982 spoof Five Go Mad in Dorset. Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Adrian Edmondson and Peter Richardson reunite for one last adventure as George, Anne, Julian, Dick, and, of course, Timmy the dog.

Only this time round, Julian and George are alcoholics and Anne’s just got out from prison. But Dick’s determined to carry on just as before!

The Comic Strip Presents: Five Go to Rehab is on GOLD tonight, 7 November, at 9pm.
