JOHNNY Vegas’ sitcom Ideal is reportedly to be made into a film.

Graham Duff, the programme’s creator, is currently writing the script, and filming is planned for early next year.

According to Chortle chief executive of Baby Cow Henry Normal said: “It’s going to be set in the same place, with many of the same characters. We even brought the physical set from the BBC, our co-producers on the TV series.

“We are aiming for it to be quite a dark psychological comedy-thriller.”

Normal further explained that Ideal fans still show their support for the series, for example staging Ideal nights which feature stand-up performances from the programme’s cast members.
