Francesca ShillcockThe hit BBC sitcom has been on our screens for over ten years – see how the cast has changed
Not Going Out first hit out screens in 2006, so it's unsurprising the cast have changed a fair bit over the years. The BBC comedy focuses on Lee (played by Lee Mack) and his long-term love Lucy (played by Sally Bretton) and has been making us laugh for ten series. The show was even commissioned for a new series this year, but due to the coronavirus restrictions, it's likely we won't see this anytime soon. For now, we'll have to settle for the reruns! Take a look through the gallery to see how the cast looked when it first aired and how they look now…
Lee Mack - Lee
Stand-up comic and panel show presenter Lee Mack stars as a fictionalised version of himself in the show. Here's a fresh-faced Lee back when the first show started.
Playing Lee's wife and mother to their three kids is Sally Bretton. Prior to Not Going Out, Sally appeared in comedies such as The Office and Green Wing. More recently, she has appeared in Death in Paradise and Agatha Raisin.
Comedian and actor Tim Vine plays Lucy's brother and Lee's landlord. This is Tim looking youthful in his early stand-up days. More recently, he's known for appearing on comedy panel shows and quiz shows as a presenter.
