A planned revival of cult TV comedy Bottom by Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson has been axed.
The duo were working on a new project for the BBC called Hooligans' Island, but they have now ditched their plans.
They were due to revive their characters Richard Richard and Eddie Hitler, taking them to a tropical location.
But Adrian said in an interview for BBC Radio Essex said the series would no longer be going ahead: "We started working on something and we realised why we stopped working together. It wasn't working."
He added: "Once you get to a certain age you want to do things you really enjoy, not just things you can do."
A BBC spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that Hooligans' Island is not going to be made."
