Hugh Dennis confirms Outnumbered specials

Hugh Dennis reveals 'Outnumbered' will return for a number of specials.

While the BBC comedy has been cancelled, Hugh explained during an appearance on ITV's 'Loose Women' earlier today (02.07.15), that the much-loved show will be back.

He said: "I think it's completely done as a series but there will be specials. I'm confident there will be specials."

And Hugh admitted the cast had no idea their final episode was the last in the series until after it had been shot.

He explained: "We didn't know. As far as I remember, there were various scenes in the last show and there was one little bit of dialogue, where I turn to Claire Skinner [Sue Brockman] and go, 'We've not done badly have we?' and you think, 'Oh, that sounds a bit [final]' but we weren't formally told, as far as I remember, until after we recorded it which was probably quite a good thing."

Meanwhile, Hugh is not on Twitter but revealed his friend Hugh Bonneville, who plays Lord Grantham on 'Downton Abbey' challenges impersonators.

He said: "I'm not on Twitter. I think various people pretend to be me...but they get found out. I know Hugh Bonneville quite well and he looks out for people who are pretending to be me and sends them a tweet saying 'if you are the real Hugh Dennis, what did you have in the pub last night?' that kind of thing and then they can't answer it."
