Neil Morrissey has opened up about the possibility of getting Men Behaving Badly back on the screen, and has revealed that he and his co-stars are all keen to return to the hit sitcom. Chatting on Lorraine about bringing it back for a reunion episode, the 55-year-old said: "Everything starts with the script. Martin, Caroline, Leslie and I have all said we will do it!" The actor also confessed that acting "saved him" as a child growing up in a care home.

Neil opened up about a reunion

He said: "When I was very young, I was brought up in care, in kids' homes, as you know. I was an unruly child, in some ways, or smart and lively. This teacher came in, Sheila Steel, and I was a bit cheeky to her the first day she arrived and she took me out of the class and slammed a script in my chest and said, 'You're in the school play!' And it went on from there. I was occupied, I had to do my homework, I was getting attention and I was getting praised. It was the right formula and a formula that stuck!"

Neil is currently starring in Unforgotten on ITV, and has also previously appeared in Line of Duty, Granchester and had a two-year stint on Waterloo Road, which he later revealed he didn't enjoy. Speaking on The Two Shot podcast about the experience, he said: "I was angry on set every day, because the scripts, the delivery of the scripts and the quality of the scripts was so awful. And I was tied into it so it was like… forced labour. And you still as a responsible actor, want to go and give your one hundred percent, but at the same time I was compromised by the fact that it was awful scripts and an awful situation."
