Robert Llewellyn promises he will "never" to go back to 'Red Dwarf' but he always ends up going back on the sci-fi comedy series

Robert Llewellyn always promises "never" to go back to 'Red Dwarf'.

The 56-year-old star - who plays the robotic Kryten in the sci-fi show - never wants to film another series once he has finished working on it, but always goes back eventually.

He said: "It's one of those shows where at the end I go, 'I'll never do that f***ing show...' but I've said that every single time since 1989."

Robert assumed recording the 10th series of the programme - the first since mini-series 'Back to Earth' in 2009 - would be strange, but claims every time the crew, including Danny John-Jules, Craig Charles and Chris Barrie, get back together, they feel like they have never been apart.

He told BANG Showbiz: "It was weird that it wasn't weird. I must admit the first night of live recording, with the audience, I was bricking it, I was really nervous. Craig wasn't nervous, but I was."

'Red Dwarf X' is available now on DVD, Blu-Ray and download.
