Kris Marshall has opened up about whether My Family will return to our screens in the future
Viewers have been loving watching My Family reruns during the lockdown, and Kris Marshall has opened up about whether he would ever return for another episode of the hit sitcom which concluded in 2011. Chatting to Lorraine Kelly on Good Morning Britain, Kris said that the show only worked as the family were all living under the same roof, but he would be open to returning.

He explained: "Part of the issue that the reason the series worked in the first place was because it was a family - and while they're still a family - but now the children have grown up, I'm not sure how it would work... It's amazing watching it back, even though it's a bit like watching a time-travelling portal, but it's amazing to see how it stands up. Never say never, if the scripts are good and if the opportunity came along, never say never!"

The show's current star Ralf Little, who plays Neville Parker, revealed that he had to quit filming another show in South Africa due to COVID-19, explaining on Instagram: "We’re in South Africa, it’s pretty amazing. We’re supposed to be filming day one of World’s Most Dangerous Roads, where we drive around these incredible mountains passes in a car. Yesterday, we arrived and we saw giraffes, wildebeests and all sorts of crazy stuff. But, at the moment we’re on stand down, we don’t know whether we need to get coronavirus tests."
