Sir Tony Robison teases that a Blackadder revival could be on the way

The 76-year-old actor is best known for playing Baldrick in the classic 1980s sitcom - which covers different periods of history over the course of four series - and teased that plans for a 40th-anniversary celebration are on the way, just months after he revived his character as part of a one-off special for Comic Relief.

Speaking on ITVs 'Lorraine', he told stand-in host Christine Lampard: "All I'm gonna say is...everybody likes to celebrate a 40th anniversary, so there must be some way fresh way we can celebrate our 40th birthday, wouldn't you think?"

Meanwhile, Tony went on to recall a time when Prince William told him he would take part in the show and admitted he will never get bored of hearing about the programme because it "transformed his life" and made him a star in his late 30s.

"This is absolutely true. You know how showbiz people make up stories? This is really true. When I was being knighted by Prince William, almost 10 years ago, I was down on my knees, he brings the old sword down and he said 'I am such a fan of 'Blackadder' and I said to him 'Would you be on it?' He said 'Yeah, if you asked me.' So in other words, I was casting whilst I was knighting!"

"It's lovely really, it never palls because it just transformed my life. I was 38 by the time I did it but I was a child actor so I had been about a quarter of century in the business when suddenly my whole life was transformed by the generosity of Rowan[Atksinson] and the producer John Lloyd, who let me have all those little extra shots and lines."
