Gary and Tony are back!

Yesterday, Martin Clunes and Neil Morrissey delighted fans in Dorset by helping to host a dog show at the Buckham Fair.

The show ran on ITV from 1992 to 1998, with Clunes and Morrissey played the sofa-bound, can-drinking buffoons Gary Strang and Tony Smart.

They played opposite Leslie Ash and Caroline Quentin’s long-suffering girlfriends Deborah and Dorothy.

A brief revival for Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer telethon came in the form of a one-off sketch back in 2014.

The show made them household names, with Clunes going on to join the long-running ITV comedy drama Doc Martin.

Morrissey, recently seen in ITV crime drama Unforgotten, floated the possibility of a reboot of the series to Lorraine Kelly earlier this month.

“If there’s a script – because in my game everything starts with a script – and if the script’s good… because Martin and I and Caroline and Leslie have all said of course we’ll do it,” he said.

“So we need to get Simon Nye, nail him down and get him to write a series. Get him on!”
