Dawn French is mostly known for her role as the vicar in the hit comedy series The Vicar Of Dibley.
The actress has landed her own part on Radio 4 playing her character for a series of special programmes.
But it’s just Dawn who will be on the radio show because wildlife expert and Springwatch presenter Chris Packham who will be going on the trial of Avis Giganteus.
Radio 4 controller Gwyneth Williams said the following:
‘What makes some fictional characters stay with us all our lives? Why does it take fictional characters to reveal deeper human truths? And what really brings these characters to life?
‘I am delighted to announce anarchy on Radio 4 for a day when some of our favourite characters from drama, literature and comedy will be dropping in and out of the schedule when you least expect it to explore and examine the nature of character.’
Dawn will be good on the radio!
She’s loved my millions so we can see this being very popular.
