French will be back on screen as Geraldine Granger in 'The Vicar Of Dibley In Lockdown'. 

She said: “Back in the dog collar, back in Dibley and back on your telly at Christmas. I couldn’t be happier. Bless you.”

The show’s writer, Richard Curtis, said: “Like every village in the country, there’s been a lot happening in Dibley this year – and Dawn has got a lot to say about it.”

According to TV critic Scott Bryan, there will be three ten-minute episodes with the vicar's musings on lockdown.

A Monthly Gift Of £8 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £8 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
