32nd Carry On film is go

Ooooh, matron

The essential guide to IT transformation

Fans of the splendidly silly Carry On franchise will be delighted to learn that the 32nd film in the series - tentatively dubbed Carry On London - "could be in cinemas by the end of the year", according to the Beeb.

The film will centre on a limo company ferrying celebrities to the Herberts - the Brit equivalent of the Oscars - although who'll be behind the wheel won't be revealed until casting details are firmed up. Vinnie Jones, Shane Ritchie and Daniella Westbrook have all been linked with the project, the BBC notes, and a spokeswoman for the film hinted at possible celeb involvement, teasing: "We will be having some cameo appearances in the film."

The project has been a long time in gestation. It was first planned back in 2003, with EastEnders star Shaun Williamson signed up to play chauffeur Dickie Ticker. He pulled out in 2004 after producer James Black was replaced, and the production schedule knocked back.

Now, though, a final script with a "fun storyline" has been signed off, according to the spokeswoman, and the merriment can commence.

The makers are hoping to get Carry On London into cinemas by the end of this year to coincide with the 50th Carry On anniversary, although this is dependant on when production actually starts. ®
