Ralf Little says he owes his career to 'The Royle Family' and would never say no to returning for one-off specials.

Ralf Little "owes his career" to 'The Royle Family'.

The 34-year-old actor shot to fame playing Antony Royle in the popular sitcom and admits he is always willing to star in one-off specials because show creators Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash gave him his big break.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at a VIP screening of Kasabian's new concert film in London's Leicester Square last night (16.07.14), he said: "I owe everything to it, and if Caroline and Craig ever said to me, 'Do you want to do it?' then I almost don't feel it would be my position [to say no] because I owe my entire career to them.

"I think people still love it. As long as they can keep on writing good scripts then I think there's a place for it."

Ralf also revealed that getting back together with the cast - including his on-screen parents Ricky Tomlinson and Sue Johnston - for specials is like a real-life family reunion.

He enthused: "I'd always like [to make] more because it's great fun to do. The whole group back together, it really is like one big family."

The last 'Royle Family' special aired on Christmas Day 2012 to a massive 9.90 million viewers, but there are no plans in place yet for a new episode.

He added: "At the moment, no plans."
