Robert Lindsay says he will never return to 'My Family', the BBC sitcom he starred in for 11 years with Zoe Wanamaker

Robert Lindsay insists he will never return to 'My Family'.

The actor played Ben Harper in the BBC family sitcom between 2000 and 2011, but he has ruled out a revival for the comedy, which also starred Zoe Wanamaker as his wife Susan.

He told Digital Spy: "Oh no! No, no, no, no. That's gone now.

"The kids are 45! When the kids kinda went like that you went, 'Oh...' "

"I don't like returning to things anyway."

The 64-year-old star went on to suggest he continued starring in the series - which screened 11 series and numerous Christmas specials - for longer than he had originally intended.

He said: "I did 'My Family' for a really long time and for reasons that I will not go into here ... one of which was Zoe 'cos I loved her so much.

"It was just a very convenient job - it was Pinewood Studios, which was just a hop, skip and jump from where I lived."

Robert starred in all but three of the 120 episodes of 'My Family', while Zoe appeared in 115 episodes.

The series also starred Gabriel Thompson, Daniela Denby-Ashe and Kris Marshall as the Harpers' children.
