The latest collaboration between Walliams and Lucas comes after the pair has dropped out.

The former comic duo was only seen together for seven years until May 2018, when they both attended Dale Winton's funeral.

In his autobiography, Lucas revealed how the tensions between the couple in 2005 during their Little Britain Live tour boiled, leading to a spectacular backstage fight.

The two met for the first time in the National Youth Theater and broke into the comedy scene with Little Britain.
