Catherine Tate is bringing back Lauren for tour


Catherine Tate is resurrecting her character Lauren Cooper for a 21-date UK tour.

The comedian and actress is taking The Catherine Tate Show on the road from November 1.

The cast will include argumentative teenager Lauren - known for her catchphrase "Am I bovvered?" - who was killed off in the Christmas special in 2007.

Nan said: "She's going on tour, is she? What a load of old s**t."

The first performance will be at Manchester's O2 Apollo on November 1, and stops along the way include Edinburgh, Glasgow and Liverpool, before the show ends in Bristol on December 3.

Tickets for all shows will go on sale on Friday April 29 at 10am.
