Miranda promises Christmas special

Miranda promises Christmas special

Miranda Hart won't film another full series of 'Miranda' but has promised a Christmas special.

The actress-and-comedienne has revealed there are no plans for a fourth series of her hit BBC sitcom, but she will star in the odd special in a similar manner to 'The Royle Family'.

Talking to Alan Carr on his 'Chatty Man Summer Special' - which airs on Channel 4 tonight - she explained: "It will be a couple of specials, not a full series. Everyone wants me to get back with Gary [Barlow] - that's the general vibe.

"I have got to answer the question of where I left it at [the end of] series three. I think I know what's going to happen."

Miranda won't be resting on her laurels, though, as she resumes her popular comedy tour, 'My, What I Call', in October.

She shared: "I am going back on tour, a week at The O2 in London and Wembley. I try to feel like a pop star when I play The O2. I pretend to be Madonna backstage. Is that sad?"

She might pretend to act like a pop star on stage, but when it comes to partying like one, Miranda isn't so keen.

While discussing festivals with Alan, the 41-year-old comic joked: "I think once you are over 36 you should not go to music festivals. You have to do that boots-and-shorts thing and it's not for me.

"When I am 60 or 70 I might start going. I will stop caring then and will do drugs."
