Vic Reeves and his wife Nancy Sorrell are set to star in a new podcast called 'Curl Up And D.I.'.

The 62-year-old comedy star and Nancy, 46, are joining forces in the new audio sitcom, which has been penned by Tony Pitts.

The podcast also reunites Vic with comedian Morgana Robinson, having previously worked with her on the BBC Two sitcom 'House of Fools'.

At present, the makers of the show – which will also feature the likes of Jennifer Saayeng, Mark Benton and Tomi May – are remaining tight-lipped about the plot.

However, Tony has already described the production as "a rambling shambolic tumble dryer of a sitcom" on Instagram.

He has also posted some behind-the-scenes shots of the cast working on the sitcom.

Vic is best known for his double act with Bob Mortimer, and the TV star admits he would've struggled to survive as a solo comic.

Vic – who has been married to Nancy since 2003 – previously shared: "I couldn’t ever stand up in front of an audience on my own and talk to them. It would be awful; I couldn’t bear to do it.

"It looks terrifying. With Bob and me, we just act out little plays."

Vic – who played the part of Colin Callen in 'Coronation Street' in 2017 – claims he doesn't actually follow the comedy world and he doesn't follow the politics of stand-up either.

He said: "When people say you can and can’t say things, I don’t know who’s the authority on it.

"As long as you’re kind, as long as you’re not upsetting anyone. But that’s a natural thing, isn’t it? I would never do anything if I thought it was going to upset anyone."
