Over two decades since they first appeared together in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, Ralf Little and Will Mellor are reuniting for a brand new TV show.

Will & Ralf Should Know Better will follow the friendship between the two men, who are now in their forties.

Each episode in the four-part series will see the pair embark on a series of encounters and challenges that test their attitudes on everything from embracing their 'spiritual' side, facing their fear of ageing and discovering the perils of living off grid with no toilet paper.

The fly-on-the-wall series will also feature intimate conversations between the two best mates - who also host the Two Pints podcast together - as they sometimes get life right but more often get it rather wrong.

The four episodes will air on U&Dave and are expected to land later this year, although an exact date has yet to be announced.

Death in Paradise star Ralf said: “I am thrilled to be working with Will again as it’s always so much fun. We’ve just finished our podcast tour and I thought I might get a bit of a break from him! 

“This time we get to explore how we should be living in the modern world while educating ourselves and having a laugh at the same time. I can’t wait to get going.”

Broadchurch and EastEnders actor Will added: “I’ve wanted to do a series like this for years! Going on a journey with Ralf to open our minds and push our limits … what could possibly go wrong!? 

“We’re both in our 40s now and probably a bit set in our ways, so now is the perfect time to see how we could be doing life better. Hopefully, we’ll come out of it better equipped for the modern world and, ideally, still in one piece.”

Royle Family legend Ralf recently ended his four year stint playing DI Neville Parker in Death in Paradise. 

His character sailed away with DS Florence Cassell, played by Josephine Jobert, at the conclusion of series 13 in March. It has recently been revealed who will replace him. Read about it here.
