Several of Little Britain's more controversial characters will be dropped if the series is revived in the near future, co-creator Matt Lucas has revealed.
Lucas and David Walliams are believed to have held talks with Netflix about the possibility of bringing back the iconic comedy for a new run of episodes, but not all of the characters would feature due to sensitivity concerns.
Among those in line for the chop are transvestite Emily Howard, Thai bride Ting Tong, xenophobic Maggie Blackamoor and social care patient Anne.
"We need to sit down and work out who we are bringing back and who we aren't," Lucas told The Sun.
"I think the reason the show was successful is because it reflected how we all were back when we made it, if we hadn't have got that right it wouldn't have been so popular.
"I think to make it successful today you'd have to reflect how we all are now.
"I think you definitely have a better chance of success if you are in sync with how people are at that time."
At its peak, Little Britain was watched by more than 10 million viewers on BBC One.Follow us on Twitter @SMEntsFeed and like us on Facebook for the latest entertainment news alerts.
