John Cleese is reported to be in talks to return to the BBC for a sitcom which has been written specifically for him.

The Fawlty Towers and Monty Python star was quoted in a magazine interview last year as saying “there’s no way I want to work in TV, especially at the BBC”.

BBC comedy head Shane Allen told the Daily Telegraph Cleese is a “comedy god, and the door is always open”.
“We’re in discussions about a piece that he might be in. It’s a sitcom and it’s very early days,” Mr Allen said.

A BBC spokeswoman said: “We would love to work with John Cleese. However nothing is confirmed at this stage and we do not comment on developments.”
