Comedy duo fly in to film new series

STAFF at Doncaster airport will have an extra special reason to watch Matt Lucas' and David Walliams' new comedy show – it was filmed at Robin Hood.

The duo spent almost two weeks filming the comedy at the Finningley airport.

Come Fly With Me is a six-part series set in an airport.

Airport director Mike Morton said: "Everyone is really excited to see it on the BBC over Christmas.

"The stars and crew were very friendly and their filming certainly caused a buzz around the place.

"The filming took place earlier in the year and it will be interesting to see how the comedy show unfolds.

"There are quite a few Lucas and Walliams fans among the staff and we are sure they will all be tuning in on Christmas Day night when the show airs."

Cast and crew stayed in the Crown Hotel, Bawtry, and Walliams' model wife Lara Stone was also seen.

Hotel spokesman Katey Dent said around 50 people from the BBC film crew stayed in the town.

She said: "Matt Lucas was seen buying a bag of chips in the village and spent some time trying to find somewhere he could watch an Arsenal match on the television."
