Come Fly With Me scrapped as Matt Lucas and David Walliams split up

Matt Lucas and David Walliams

Comedy duo Matt Lucas and David Walliams are splitting up after more than 20 years writing and performing together, it has been claimed. According to The Sun the funny pair have stopped working together, causing the BBC to scrap plans for a second series of Come Fly With Me.

The fly on the wall mockumentary was a huge hit earlier this year, with more than 7 million viewers tuning in.

BBC comedy chief Mark Freeland recommissioned the show earlier this year, saying at the time: “After such a flying start on BBC1, it’s great news that Matt and David will once again be filling the check-in desks, departure lounges and cockpits with their wonderful and weird characters.”

However a pal told The Sun today: "They still get on but as far as being working partners is concerned, that had ground to a halt.

"They both wanted to do completely different things. Neither wants to be defined by the partnership any more. They want to be known as more than those guys that do Little Britain."

David last week told students at Oxford University: "I want to do something more personal and on a different level. So at the moment we are doing different things. We will re-group at some point and see what the future holds."

David Walliams is set to debut his new project 'Wall of Fame' this Friday. The topical panel show will start on Sky 1 HD at 10PM.
