She has only ever been acknowledged as a woman once in the entire series the man in question then caught her in the male bathroom of the pub he was at.
Rather than trying to be like a modern woman, Emily wears outdated, Victorian frocks and her behaviour follows that of the out-dated Victorian stereotype, including talking in an exaggeratedly high-pitched voice, an equally high-pitched nervous laugh, using the word "lady" as an adjective for almost everything and feigning a lack of strength, which only makes her even less convincing.
Additionally, she is in the habit of using French words in normal conversation. Most sketches involving Emily revolve around the performing of stereotypically male behaviour such as fixing a car or playing football in spite of her appearance, or exaggerated attempts to persuade others that she is a woman and to allow her to perform exclusively female behaviour e.
From the second series onwards, Emily has best friend Florence as a companion and is teaching her how to pretend to be like a lady.
In her first sketch, she attempts to become a model for an art class, but is forced to pose with no clothes on, thus being forced to admit that she is not a lady.
And she also meets Sting where she sings and even kisses him. In her third sketch, she is arrested and, due to the seriousness of the situation, Eddie Howard is forced to admit that he's a male, much to his frustration.
It is also here that we learn that Eddie has a wife and three kids, one of which is named Tommy. In her final sketch, she blind dates another man, who accidentally drives off with her wig.
Even though Emily is one of the series primary characters, neither Emily nor Florence appeared in Little Britain Abroad. Emily later appears in a sketch for Sport Relief where she trained Peter Crouch on how to be a lady.
At the end of each show in Series 1, they try to set a world record , but end up not meeting the requirements or not having essential things.
For example, they want to set the record for the world's tallest man, but then realise that wearing an excessively tall top hat doesn't count, or that they want to set the record for the largest baked bean bath, but then realise they need more than one tin of baked beans to fill the bath.
On one occasion, they lost their subject when trying to break the record for the world's smallest ant. Each attempt usually takes place in an empty auditorium, showing that they are largely unpopular record attempts.
The next sketch shows that they were making the world's largest meat pie, but didn't get an oven big enough to bake it. Their last sketch was the record for the most people in a mini but could only fit four people in the car.
Jane and Rod have a daughter who is in a coma, but it is seen that they use their motionless child as a decoy in order to get celebrities to meet them.
David Soul visits them in the first skit, but they only appear to be interested in him and not their child. In the next skit Les McKeown visits them to sing them some of his songs which they say their child wants to hear despite being motionless.
They also appear in a Series 1 deleted scene, going through a list of celebrities due to visit them. Catchphrase: "Wicky Woo!
He is in denial and hasn't come to terms with the fact he is no longer on TV. He is often seen pestering the other members of staff with his puppet called Croc O'Dile and his frequent sayings of "wicky woo".
The Series 1 DVD contains a deleted scene showing Des visiting a children's hospital and accidentally unplugging a patient's life support machine while trying to play some cheerful music on a tape recorder.
He appears on the radio series, and even makes it into the best of Little Britain Radio show 2-disc set.
According to the Radio series, he was sacked from his "Fun Bus" show because of gross indecency saying "Are you telling me you've never had a wank in the toilet?
One of the new employees at DIY universe where Des was working at the time claims that he and his sister watched the show during its run and revealed that a girl lost an eye on the show.
Des Kaye also made an appearance on the live show, making him one of only 2 characters to have had their last appearance on the show in series 1, the other being Ray McCooney.
The act involved Des driving around in what is presumably a miniature fun bus and angrily throwing lollipops at the audience.
He then proceeds to play a game called "Hide the Sausage", which involves him taking 2 men from the audience at random, asking them to hide a large sausage on a random body part and then molest the contestant who he thinks has the sausage until a loud siren goes off.
In the Australian tour, Walliams received a letter of complaint for this strong scene, he then claimed he would respond with an apology.
Reverend Jesse King is a Black American preacher on a foreign exchange with the vicar of a small village church in Britain.
He states that he is "from the ghetto"; loudly encourages the congregation to "fight the power"; and attempts to cure a man's cough using faith healing and when this fails, he gives the man some cough sweets instead.
Catchphrase : "Have you met Anne, by the way? Dr Lawrence is the Doctor in charge of Anne's progress. He rarely makes a fuss about Anne's childish behaviour and is only seen being angry at her once, when she was going to chuck his children's guinea pig out the window, which she did moments later.
Leonard is a man who works in a retirement home. He goes to great lengths to ensure comfort for certain inhabitants, mainly himself.
Officer Lindsay appears only once in Series 1. He is a retired police officer in the town of Scoffage, who gives driving lessons. After persuading his student to drive at law-breaking speeds, he promptly pulls the car over, goes to the driver's window and interrogates the student for speeding as if he were still a policeman.
Lindsay drives a brown Austin Allegro on which he has crudely painted the word 'Police', he also wears a policeman's uniform, claiming all his other clothes were in the wash.
Liz and Clive are a middle-aged couple who spend a lot of time eating in their local Chinese restaurant. Throughout these sketches, Liz loudly and endlessly claims that she had been a bridesmaid at Mollie Sugden 's wedding, which angers and annoys Clive, especially when Liz makes him listen to her rather than talk to an old classmate of Paul McCartney 's the man is played by Ted Robbins , McCartney's real-life cousin.
In the final sketch involving these characters, Liz is still endlessly ranting about being Sugden's bridesmaid when Sugden comes to the restaurant, causing Liz to suddenly get agitated and try to leave.
Clive then approaches Sugden with Liz trying almost physically to stop him and she denies any knowledge of Liz, as her friend Helen had been her only bridesmaid.
At this point, Liz suddenly stabs and kills her with a knife, revealing that she had been fabricating her claims of being Sugden's bridesmaid.
Catchphrase: "Whateva! Aide to the Prime Minister , Sebastian holds a badly-concealed homosexual crush on his boss. Wildly jealous of anyone who takes the attention of the PM, Sebastian does everything in his power to bring the attention back to himself.
He often "accidentally" finds himself in sexually suggestive positions with his boss, who is usually very patient with and largely oblivious to or tacitly accepting of his advances.
He is also very defensive of his boss when he comes under fire from the press or general public for instance, when some people present a petition saying that they want the PM to resign, he tears it up and throws it in their faces without showing it to anyone.
In the finale of Series 2, he tries to kiss the PM but is at first unsuccessful and weeps. When questioned if he has a crush on his boss, he denies it, then kisses his boss.
He believes that his feelings for the PM are mutual, as he occasionally seduces other men to make the PM jealous.
Catchphrase: Andy: "I want that one Lou Todd is Andy Pipkin's caregiver but is often taken advantage of by Andy in various ways, although deep down Andy loves Lou.
These include Andy's demanding things then rejecting them when they are done for him or when they are given to him , and Andy's ability to walk and perform complex physical activities while out of his wheelchair while Lou is not looking.
Andy is often dismissive and unkind to other characters, and kills Lou's replacement by pushing her off a cliff when she becomes too strict for him.
The pair are the longest serving members of the cast of characters having appeared in every episode except the TV pilot and the radio series.
Mr Mann is a customer who shops in a store which varies in the merchandise it sells from episode to episode run by Roy. He will usually ask for ridiculously specific items in the shop such as "a painting of a disappointed horse " in Series 3 Episode 2.
Roy would then call to his unseen wife, Margaret in the back room for assistance. Mr Mann appeared in only one episode in the first series, but was a regular character in the second and third series.
He is typically dressed in a grey raincoat, dark striped tie and black trousers. These sketches are some of the more traditional in the series, relying upon word play and surrealism.
Early versions of the sketch feature Roy being unable to provide Mr Mann with his request due to it being too specific, and attempting to provide him with a substitute, which he may refuse for a trivial reason which is important to him.
In later sketches, Roy became accustomed to his requests and was sometimes able to provide them. Mr Mann himself does not have any catchphrase while Roy and Margaret do and often delivers comedic content by making ludicrous suggestions to resolve a problem such as asking whether a long-dead writer would be prepared to re-write his book and cut out all the "Os" to make the book shorter.
In Little Britain Abroad , he visits a shop in Morocco with a Moroccan counterpart of Roy and asks for Pirate Memory Games, which was the first thing he ever asked for at Roy's shop in the British version.
In one episode, he asks for "a record of James Last playing Nelly Furtado 's hits on a banjo with a picture on the cover of James with his hands open showing stigmata " and Roy has the exact record he asked for.
In another episode, Mr Mann asks for a book and is being very specific about it, then asks if he's being too specific and Roy tells him that he is.
He then asks "have you got any books? Appearances: Margaret is always off-screen, but she has been included since Series 1 Catchphrase: See Roy below.
Margaret and her husband, Roy, own a shop frequented by Mr Mann. She is unseen throughout all the series and helps Roy when he calls to her from behind the counter.
She usually takes a long time to reply whenever Roy calls out to her. One episode reveals that she is unseen because she has no arms or legs.
Appearances: Little Britain USA Mark and Tom are stereotypical American bodybuilders with enormous muscles, tiny penises and a tendency to boast to each other about their most recent workouts and sexual encounters.
Despite talking about being with other women, they are shown to have homoerotic tendencies toward each other and often frolic about naked to the eyes of everyone in the locker rooms which gives them erections at one point.
They never mention their names onscreen making it hard to find out which is which, and in the last of their sketches they have had operations which gives the one played by Lucas a long tube of a penis and the one played by Walliams a woman's genitalia.
Dame Sally Markham is a wealthy, famous romantic novelist, whose preferred method of writing involves dictating her novel to her secretary Miss Grace, played by David Walliams to type out, while lying on her sofa with her pet bichon frise and a box of chocolates.
This is a reference to the novelist Dame Barbara Cartland , whose preferred writing method was dictation in similar circumstances. Unlike Cartland's novels, however, Dame Sally's stories typically fall well short of the required length, and she will use drastic and often illegal methods in an effort to lengthen them, such as having the characters over-extend their interjections such as "Yahoooooooooooo" , integrating excerpts from the radio, plagiarizing extracts from Lady Chatterley's Lover , or having Miss Grace type the entire Bible into her novel.
In one instance, when she tried to lengthen it using her own imagination, she barely got past 76 pages and could not think of anything else to write, so she decided to pause with it and start a new one, which consisted only of title The Lady in Mauve , Chapter One and 'The End'.
As well as having bizarre ways of lengthening her books, Dame Sally also has some rather peculiar topiary designs outside her house, such as a hand pulling the middle finger, a dog performing an act of anal intercourse on another dog, a man picking his nose, a penis and some breasts.
April and Neville are two workers for Saint Tom Ambulance, who, in their first appearance, are shown to go into an opera house to help a man who's having a stroke.
April always offers the victims various candy mints which replace the required medical paraphernalia in her bag. In one clip April gets Neville dismissed, by shifting the blame of having the mints to him.
At the start of the final radio episode April met a fellow volunteer named Roy who used cigarettes. The two of them argued over each other's methods until they agreed on menthols when a woman collapsed.
She and her grandson Connor often chat about uneasy issues concerning what Connor has heard of or been involved in, such as drug testing, racism and homosexuality.
Mildred then reveals certain strange details of her past, such as drug habits or homosexuality or incidents involving racism. When talking about drugs, she speaks to Connor as if he should've known better, but defends herself when mentioning her own experiences, claiming that "we didn't know any different.
In their final sketch, Connor admits to being homosexual, only to be called a "faggot" by Mildred. Scottish owner of a hotel who speaks and acts like an Elizabethan fantasy character, even though he is often seen speaking and behaving perfectly normally.
He answers questions from customers in a diffident manner using riddles, "spells", and a intentionally badly dubbed flute, which he refers to as a ' piccalillo '.
He also refers strangely to ordinary objects, such as the radio, which he calls the "talking noisy box". His eccentric behaviour often annoys and confuses his guests.
However, in his final appearance, two officers from the Inland Revenue service used it against him, tricking Ray into making overdue tax payments.
His hotel is opposite IKEA. In the pilot episode, this character's name was "Roy" and his appearance was that of a chef at the "Aberdoone Stook Hoose" Aberdeen Steak House.
He also played a metal flute rather than his "Piccalillo". It is said in the series 2 script book that since series 2, Ray has been continually wandering around asking people why he isn't in the second or third series.
The name is a tribute to farce writer Ray Cooney. Andy was badly treated by Mrs Mead, and had to clean the house which in Mrs Mead's opinion, was a "pig sty".
She hit him thrice, to prove he couldn't feel anything in his legs. Behind her back he yelled in pain. She also made him eat some disgusting stew, and as an alternative to a choc ice , he had to eat a pear for pudding.
Mrs Mead forbade Andy from watching "Des and Mel". For their own "entertainment", she sang an off key religious tune. Mrs Mead then took Andy to a cliff, where he had to wheel himself.
She told him that she thought Lou had been too soft with him, and told him that he had to do cooking and cleaning, no more TV or chocolate and crisps.
When she was telling him he needed a job, Andy was tired of her unfair treatment, and killed Mrs Mead by pushing her off the cliff.
Denver Mills is a former silver medallist gold medallist in the radio drama in the metres at the Los Angeles Olympics , who now acts as a guest speaker at various events.
His speeches are always politically or factually incorrect, confusing and often offensive to the audience, such as his speech at a police dinner " First of all, we both get a lot of practise running after black guys".
In a typical sketch, he will be on his way to give his speech, but upon learning a detail in his speech is considered offensive, confusing or is not factually correct, he will proceed to throw a page of his speech away, until he is left with his greeting and dismissal.
Once, he found out he would not only be meeting people with leprosy , but also hugging them, and, suddenly reluctant to do his speech, he threw himself out of the car after a discussion about lepers.
He regularly goes on about his achievements, but gets little response for it. Mills' US equivalent is Bing Gordyn , the eighth man to walk on the moon and the first to do so with a moustache.
The two are both Walliams characters, both have had some amazing achievement that they go on about, but fail to receive praise for.
In reality the medal Mills is said to have won was actually won by the late Ivorian athlete Gabriel Tiacoh.
The Minstrels are two minstrels who are constant targets of quasi-racial discrimination. They are refused a room at a bed and breakfast, and are criticized by in radio broadcast by a government official.
One of the cut sketches shows the Minstrel played by David Walliams being denied a job to which he replies, "Is it because I'm a minstrel?
Myfanwy is the barmaid of a local pub called 'The Scarecrow and Mrs. King ' and best friend to Daffyd Thomas and often serves him Bacardi and Coke.
She is very keen to help him find a gay partner, even going as far as to close her bar so he can have a gay night which she promptly regrets because he orders all the gays who turn up to leave.
In later episodes, we learn that she is in a homosexual relationship and about to enter into a civil partnership with Rhiannon. In Little Britain Abroad , Myfanwy opens a gay bar on Mykonos in Greece, but it does not fare well because Daffyd does not hand out flyers to the locals.
It is also revealed in Little Britain Abroad that she speaks almost perfect Greek. At the end of Series 3, she is seen walking with Daffyd to the train station and she cries when he tries to leave for London.
Appearances: Unseen. The closest he ever came to saying it the right way was when he said 'goodbyes'. The narrator opens and closes every episode and provides a voice-over between many of the sketches to introduce the upcoming characters, announcing the time in a ridiculous manner, such as "nought o'clock", announcing an impossible time or date, such as 'one two o'clock' or 'It's a crisp morning in Octember', or replacing the hour with a person's name, such as 'half past Oliver' and also fictitious names for locations around Britain, such as villages called " Bruise ", "Achey Balls", and the " Mike McShane Estate'.
He will also give directions to certain places such as a McDonald's in a very strange location and "a town just southeast of Northwestshire".
The narrator delivers comedic monologues in many voice-overs by making unorthodox claims about Britain, its people or its history such as "we invented the cat " , stating the obvious such as 'I will state 3 interesting facts about Britain.
Britain is a country, 2. Britain is called Britain, 3. I loathed it Too many gays! My boyfriend and I got the first flight home!
Sometimes he would make very strange comments about a location such as 'the children of Britain are notoriously stupid and must attend school' and 'if you have a verucca you would like to share, then go to your local swimming pool'.
He often makes surreal statements, like; "I must go now because I am about to reach orgasm ", or "I do love an election At the end of one episode, shorter than the others, he remarked: "This show has ended a little earlier than usual, because a man is trying to take my clothes off, and I must ask him why".
Also, during the Marjorie Dawes sketches, he expresses much contempt for overweight people, such as calling them "vermin", or expressing a desire to have them arrested, removed from the country, spat on or shot dead.
However, in one such sketch he states that he would strangle the overweight people himself, but he can't because he's "too fat".
In an Emily Howard sketch, he says that he is wearing a beautiful dress that belonged to his father; he routinely introduces Emily as "rubbish [or not very good , or some similar phrase] transvestite Emily Howard".
In the final episode he says "Brighton, Brighton, Bri At the end he says that Little Britain is the best show ever and says he is "some kind of god that must be worshipped as such".
The Newsagent made only one appearance in Series 2. In the sketch, set in an ordinary British off-license, a customer portrayed by David Walliams comes in and, being the only other person in the shop, is forced to do his shopping under the gaze of the newsagent, who attempts to make conversation by commenting on each of the items that the customer takes for instance "Thirsty?
At the end of the sketch, after a few moments of awkward dithering, the customer reaches up to the top shelf of the magazine racks, where the pornographic ones are kept, prompting the shopkeeper to ask; "Planning a wank?
The opening scene of the sketch shows that he allows a maximum of students in his shop at one time. Pat and Don are a couple who eat at a local Indian restaurant, which has an unusually fast service.
The dishes are delivered as soon as the couple is finished ordering, and even so, the waiter will sometimes apologise for the delay.
Don always orders the spiciest dish offered to him, saying with enthusiasm that he loves his food spicy. However, he often finds the dish a little too hot for his tastes and it then causes him to spout catchphrases from a variety of s and s TV shows such as " Super match game, super match game, super match game ", " Godzilla, doo doodle doo, Godzilla doo doodle doo, Godzilla doo doodle doo and Godzooky " and " Mr Spencer!
Sandra Patterson is a stage mother who is unusually determined for her son Ralph which she pronounces as "Raif", a reference to Ralph Fiennes to get into acting.
She is also very boastful and nasty to whoever she comes across. Unfortunately, her son never gets a part and, every time he fails, Sandra loses her temper and usually takes it out on whoever is nearby, unfortunately, often her son.
They appeared in the radio series under the names of Sandra and Olivier Laurence, a play on the name of the actor Laurence Olivier. She goes to such lengths to get him parts, that she pretends it's his birthday, that he's dying, and even threatening to "tell 'em you touched him!
Pedro is the Spanish , cross-dressing boyfriend of Dewi, Daffyd's brother. Pedro was with Dewi when he came out to Daffyd as gay, and Daffyd was shocked to find out Pedro was a man, and was gay also.
Pedro's character was likely based on David Walliams' impersonation of Ricky Martin. Appearances: Series 3, episodes 4 and 5 Catchphrases: "Wife, [name of food], go!
Sid Pegg is a nosy and rude Neighbourhood Watch leader who takes his job very seriously. As there is no real crime in his area, his meetings can be about anything from the Gipsy Kings to the fact that a gang of " yobs " have kicked an empty can of Lilt down the road.
He will frequently call out commands to his wife preparing dinner, in the format of "Wife, [name of food], go! He has a moustache similar to that of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
When asking for assistance from other members of the watch, he always chooses Lloyd, a short man who appeared on The Weakest Link a fact Sid continually mentions.
He pauses during his recitals to say or do mindless things, such as checking where his shopping bag is, to read a text message and to tell someone that he forgot to set the video and ask when Sainsbury's closes, before resuming the recital as if nothing had happened.
The actual pianist was Simon Callaghan, now a professional classical musician, who was studying at the Royal College of Music at the time.
An American counterpart also played by Walliams appears in a deleted scene of the US adaptation of the show. He is seen reading out of a porn magazine, which is causing him to play a faster tempo.
Gerald Pincher is the father of Harvey Pincher. He is a crusty, conservative, upper class Brit, yet he is also warm and friendly.
He appears to be unperturbed by Harvey's infantile desire for his mother's breast milk 'bitty'. He appears to be interested in the Battle of Culloden.
In Series 2 it is revealed that Gerald does not approve of vegetarianism; when informed about the need for a vegetarian option at Harvey and Jane's wedding he responds "Oh, bloody vegetarians!
String up the lot of them, I say! Harvey Pincher can be best described as a year-old upper-class mummy's boy.
He insists on "bitty" breast milk from his mother Celia played by Geraldine James even though he is an adult - much to the dismay of his prospective wife and her parents, so when they were speaking and they saw the "bitty", they would start stuttering and speaking rather slowly.
The sketches follow his engagement to Jane, through to their wedding day, which he interrupts near the end, saying "Bitty" instead of "I Do", gesturing for his mother to come up so he can have some of her breast milk.
His parents do not seem even remotely perturbed by his behaviour. Harvey Pincher and his parents without his new wife return in Little Britain USA , visiting some American relatives, who are equally shocked by his breast-feeding.
In their final sketch, Harvey's mother Celia overhears the relatives insulting them behind their back about the breast-feeding and is offended.
It is also revealed that Harvey is burped by Celia, wears a nappy and Gerald changes him. I sooo can't believe you just said that!
Vicky Pollard is a teenage girl who is intended to be a parody of chavs living in the West Country at the time Matt Lucas was studying at the University of Bristol.
When challenged about something, she comes up with gossip that has nothing whatsoever to do with whatever problem she is in at the time, although she claims to be "getting there".
She also speaks very quickly which, together with the gossip she comes up with, usually confuses or agitates the person in question.
She dresses in a dirty, pink-coloured Kappa tracksuit. Her place of residence throughout the series was a fictitious town called Darkley Noone, which is shown to be in Bristol.
For instance, she refers to places within the Bristol area, such as Fishponds , the Broadmead Shopping Centre and Wookey Hole which is actually just outside Wells , but is a short drive from Bristol.
She also speaks with a lisp pronouncing "borstal" as "borthtal" and a West Country accent. Vicky Pollard went to school in the first series.
In the first series, she was accused of shoplifting, became pregnant and swapped the baby for a Westlife CD and was sentenced to borstal where she bit someone called Jackie Hayes a counterpart of Vicky played by Walliams.
In the third series, she works for a sex hotline and pretends she's a lesbian with three girlfriends named "Ferrero", "Rocher" and "Twix", was hired to babysit and had a wild party in the house while the parents were away and tried to get money from a forged lottery ticket.
In Little Britain Abroad she was shut in a Thai prison for smuggling heroin and her mother, Shelly Pollard played by Dawn French , made an appearance in court saying that Vicky got into a bad crowd at the age of three.
Vicky was sentenced to 10 years for this offence her mother gets 20 for annoying the judge. Her boyfriend, Jermaine made a brief cameo appearance in a sketch in Series 2.
She is shown in various episodes to be a chav girl seeking to get pregnant in order to get a council house: - in one episode, she is shown enviously referring to an acquaintance of hers who is only 9 years old, but has a council house of her own and 3 children.
On the episode where she takes a job at a sleazy sex hotline, she is shown pushing along 6 daughters in buggies all dressed identically to her, whilst in the babysitting episode, she also mentions that she has 6 children of her own.
She often says "I have 6 babies by 7 different blokes. She enrages the coach, jabbering away during rollcall and refusing to follow orders. This behaviour continues until the other girls run off to get their first assignments and Vicky stays behind to express concern over one of the girls being possibly lesbian.
In another sketch, she smokes in the bathroom and her hair catches fire she is saved by the concerned coach. In her final sketch in the series, she is in hospital on life support after jumping off the church roof.
The coach is shown to be very caring towards her. Rachel Walliams and Nicola Lucas are two single women looking for love, who go to lunch together and keep track of dates and potential boyfriends by exchanging Polaroid photos of the men's genitals.
Jeremy is Dennis Waterman 's theatrical agent who, while on the phone, at the slightest hint of disagreement, shouts the last word and hangs up the phone.
He often struggles to get Dennis to agree to take conventional acting roles, whereas Dennis is only interested in writing and singing theme tunes.
In one sketch, the usual appearance of regular sized things being huge to Dennis is swapped so when Jeremy gives Dennis a pen , it appears regular size to him and when he gives it back, the pen is gigantic to Jeremy.
The robotic careers advisor, who works in the same school as Mr. Cleaves, makes one appearance. In it, a student, who is very realistic about his career opportunities in the future, comes into his office to discuss his desire to become a caterer or engineer.
However, the robot reveals to him just how realistic his career opportunities are - according to the robot, there will be no jobs for humans in the future.
Somewhat confused, the boy leaves with a booklet explaining everything the robot has said, a warning over his untucked shirt and a reminder that the advisor is a robot.
Florence Rose is an aspiring transvestite and companion of Emily. He is even less convincing as a transvestite than Emily, in that he deliberately keeps his moustache; at one point being referred to as "a short fat bloke with a moustache" whilst attempting to purchase a dress.
Emily is teaching Florence how to be a lady in the second series, during which she regularly makes mistakes. In the last episode of Series 3 it is revealed that he is married and his real name is Fred.
Their Nationwide advertisement gives his full name as "Fred Brown. Roy owns a store that sells different items each episode where Mr Mann always shops.
His wife Margaret helps run the store but is never seen. He has stated that he hates Mr Mann because of his specific requests, and is sometimes shown to be reluctant to serve him.
On one occasion, when Mr Mann complained about a picture he had just purchased, Roy's response was "Get out or I will strangle you".
The long pause between Roy's calling to Margaret and her response was referenced in one sketch when, as soon as Roy had called to Margaret, he and Mr Mann both sat down, to read their books while waiting for her response.
He is according to the Prime Minister, very distant to him and this makes the Prime Minister think that he doesn't like his policies.
This in turn causes Robert to stand in the leadership elections. However, in the last episode of Series 3 when the Prime Minister resigns it is announced that Robert will be the new Prime Minister, which leaves Sebastian, the Prime Minister's aide who has always taken a dislike to Robert, calling him "Fat and Scottish" in tears.
He is based on Gordon Brown who at the time was in the same position. Appearances: Since Series 1, in all but one scene with Sebastian Love.
The Prime Minister and the object of Sebastian's affection. Based heavily on the then real-life British Prime Minister Tony Blair , there are several references to the political scene of the time.
Michael has a tumulous relationship with Sebastian, playing on Blair's strained relationship with Peter Mandelson. One scene depicts the Prime Minister conducting difficult talks with the President of the United States , where the President tries to compel the Prime Minister to follow his position, referring to Blair's following of the policy of the Bush administration on the then-ongoing war with Iraq.
He "retires" at the end of Series 3, to Sebastian's horror, which is alluding to the long expected and much anticipated handover of Tony Blair to his Chancellor , Gordon Brown , which took place in real life two years after the Prime Minister retired in the series.
David Walliams states that Anthony Head got the role because "next to Steve Martin , he's the only man I'll ever turn gay for. One of the few characters based on a real person, the sketch involved a Mr.
T look-alike complete with gold chains and mohawk who claimed to have never heard of the muscle-bound star or even seen The A-Team despite the fact he also drank milk and drove a van identical to the one from the show.
Get over it! For Gays! In fact, there is a huge gay community in his village and the surrounding area, but he utterly refuses to acknowledge or associate with them.
Instead, he frequently proclaims his homosexuality as a means to draw attention to himself , and has almost no or indeed, any homosexual experience, appearing instead to be more terrified by the thought of it than having any desire to seek it out - in Little Britain USA he exclaims "I can't have sex with a man, I'm gay!
There is only one sketch in which he seemed to admire a handsome man he thought was gay. He secretly longs to be victimised for his supposed homosexuality and often brands anyone who speaks to him as homophobic even if all they said was "Hello".
Daffyd is frequently shown to be very ignorant, and prone to making offensive and politically incorrect statements about other homosexuals.
He claims that "lesbians don't count" and tells another that she is "far too attractive" to be a lesbian. He spends most of his time in the village pub talking to barmaid and best friend, Myfanwy.
Myfanwy who is later revealed to be in a lesbian relationship herself with girlfriend Rhiannon is eager to help him with his apparent disengaged love life, and encourages him to meet other gay men or groups, all of whom he rejects or insults.
She continues to try to help him despite his repeated bluntness; many sketches end with him leaving his local pub after claiming that his village is completely homophobic.
He also has a habit of organising gay-related events such as a gay society and then refusing other gays entry by simply declaring that they are not genuinely gay.
He has a mother played by Ruth Madoc , and father who are not bothered by his self-proclaimed homosexuality, much to his chagrin; they in fact have many gay relatives.
In Little Britain Abroad, he is shocked to learn from Myfanwy that his mother is in love with her aunt, and he even has a gay brother named Dewi played by James Corden , who has a Spanish boyfriend named Pedro.
In the final episode of Series 3, he decides to leave Llandewi Brefi for London because he felt he was an out , gay man.
However, he decided not to go, because he learnt from Myfanwy what a gay man could do in London. If he wins the local election, he claims he would turn Llanddewi Brefi Park into a hour gay cruising zone merely by adding statues of Colin and Justin , and that he would demolish the Llanddewi Brefi Home of Retirement and replace it with a gay sauna.
Most people seem to back Daffyd; the elderly lady in the sketch reveals she is a lesbian herself, causing Daffyd to faint. In Little Britain Abroad , he ruins the opening night of Myfanwy's gay bar on Mykonos in Greece because he hands out fliers to a 5-year-old tourist girl and a Greek nun instead of to other gay people though the nun later reveals herself to be a lesbian.
He is also noticeably curious about what being homosexual is actually like when he questions a homosexual Walliams on a Mykonos beach. Daffyd appears in Little Britain USA , in which he attends an American university and claims to be "the only gay on campus".
In his first appearance, a gay student Walliams hijacks Daffyd's "Gay society" stand, feeling that he could do a better job at running it than Daffyd.
He then starts admitting more gay people while Daffyd looks on in shock. This is the first time that another gay person has taken over his attempt to prove the fact that he is the only one.
He later discovers that he is not the "only gay on campus" when he confronts two lesbians who are living next door for making too much noise when he is trying to sleep.
He appears in the deleted scenes, in which he protests to his English lecturer about the apparent lack of gay writers in their syllabus.
He handcuffs himself to a desk and swallows the key, only to discover that they have been studying Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams , two famous gay writers.
ONE more night Dudley Punt ordered a Thai bride from a magazine. However, Ting Tong Macadangdang is quite the opposite of the slim, beautiful bride Dudley was expecting.
He is not very happy about this, but for sex, he continues to let her stay "one more night". Dudley is very sarcastic and has a West Midlands accent.
Ting Tong, on the other hand, is very loud and claims not to be able to understand Dudley a lot of the time, and refers to him as "Mister Dudwey".
The sketches generally involve Dudley and Ting Tong's relationship blossoming, only for Ting Tong to reveal a secret about herself.
Dudley would then order her out. She would then try to convince him through various methods to let her stay, to which he always gives in.
Ting Tong has many secrets: it is revealed she is a lady-boy , born Tong Ting Macadangdang. She admitted that she comes from Tooting in London, not from a remote Thai village called Pong Pong, as she'd originally claimed.
Ting Tong eventually invited her entire family to live in Dudley's home, turned it into a Thai restaurant and forced him to spend Christmas Eve standing on his porch, waiting for it to close.
Later, in Little Britain Abroad , after finally getting married, they go on a honeymoon to Belgium, where they stay with Dudley's brother, who has married a beautiful Russian bride called Ivanka which is actually not a Russian given name who claims to be 18 years old.
During this sketch, Dudley flirts with Ivanka, which makes Ting Tong jealous, so she plays Dudley and his brother a pornographic video Ivanka starred in, revealing she is not a virgin as she originally claimed.
She seems to look at penises because despite repeatedly denying that she looks at penises, she says to a man "Sorry about your penis".
A recurring character in Series 2, Viv Tudor is seen to be the manager of a jewellery shop. In her first appearance, the police are at her shop, investigating a recent break-in.
When the police sergeant David Walliams asks her to describe the robbers, she is only capable of saying 'Ohhhh, he was gorgeous!
In her final appearance, Viv is at the police station, where six possible robbers are given an identity parade. She claims that the final suspect was the robber, and says that they're 'Ohhhh, gorgeous!
Warren appears in a hospital, apparently on his deathbed. Throughout the sketch, he goes quiet and appears to be dead. However, as the family begin to mourn, he speaks again to reveal himself as still alive, and "still waiting".
Towards the end of the sketch, he appears to die, as he does not speak for a long time. As his family starts to mourn, he gets out of bed and announces he needs to use the toilet, shocking the family.
He also appears in deleted scenes from series 3, still waiting to die. It is obviously a long time since the last sketch and the family is preparing to leave.
As they say goodbye and let the nurses to call if anything happens, Warren calls "Stay where you are Matthew Waterhouse is an inventor who presents very silly and crazy ideas for musicals, board games, impersonators and cereals, with a sketch on each subject, and usually barges into the person's office uninvited.
Several examples of his ideas are breakfast cereal " Sugar Poofs : Real gay men frosted with sugar.
Long as I get to write the theme tune, shing the theme tune Dennis Waterman is a very small actor who, unfortunately, always rejects proposed parts , insisting that he should "write the theme tune , sing the theme tune" every time, much to the chagrin of his theatrical agent, Jeremy.
However, when he is offered to reprise a role in a TV series in which he indeed gets to "write the theme tune, sing the theme tune", he responds "No thanks, I've moved on.
Lawrence: Matt Lucas, Dr. Beegree: Steve Furst. Mann ist der roboterhaft wirkende Stammkunde des Fachgeschäfts von Roy und Margaret, deren Sortiment selten gleich bleibt, mal handelt es sich um einen Spielwarenladen, mal um eine Buchhandlung, mal um ein Kostümgeschäft.
Er überfordert damit Roy, der nach seiner Frau Margaret im Hinterzimmer ruft, die nicht erscheinen kann, da sie keine Arme und keine Beine hat, doch prompt eine Lösung parat hat.
Nur in drei Folgen kauft er tatsächlich etwas: einmal kauft er den gesamten Bücherbestand eines Buchladens, obwohl er laut eigener Aussage blind ist, ein weiteres Mal eine Schallplatte wo er, anders als sonst, die absurden Details seines gesuchten Gegenstandes sofort nennt, Roy ihm jedoch zu seiner Überraschung sofort seinen Wunsch präsentiert und ein anderes Mal kauft er das Bild einer unzufriedenen Eule wenn auch nur durch Gewaltandrohung von Roy.
Zudem ist Mr. Mann der Auffassung, dass sein gesuchter Artikel verfügbar wird, indem er einfach eine Weile wartet, so z. Zitate: "Champagner, Champagner für alle!
Sie versucht häufig den Geschäftsführer Mr Hutton, der sie immer auf ihren Zahlungsrückstand aufmerksam macht, zu verführen. Matt Lucas trägt in dieser Rolle ein Kostüm, einen Fettanzug , der ihn viel dicker macht, als er eigentlich ist.
In fast jedem Sketch legt Bubbles ihre Kleidung ab und ist nackt zu sehen. Desiree und Bubbles tragen ihre Streitigkeiten miteinander durch gewalttätige Auseinandersetzungen in entkleidetem Zustand aus, was Roman sehr gut gefällt, da er einen Fetisch für Körperfett hat.
Diese beiden Charaktere riefen Beschwerden hervor. Die genervte und verbitterte Carol arbeitet in einer Bank 2. Staffel beziehungsweise einem Reisebüro 3.
Staffel bzw. Sie geht stets auf die Fragen ihrer Kunden ein, indem sie diese vermeintlich in ihren Computer tippt, die Anfrage in der Regel daraufhin negiert und sich dabei auf die Entscheidung des Computers beruft.
Es ist offensichtlich, dass sie sich mit keinerlei Arbeit konfrontieren will und emotional abgestumpft ist. Dame Sally Markham ist eine wohlhabende, berühmte Autorin romantischer Romane, deren Lieblingsmethode des Schreibens das Diktieren ihrer Romane an ihre Sekretärin Miss Grace ist, die diese an ihrer Schreibmaschine abtippt, während Dame Markham auf ihrem Sofa mit ihrem Hund liegt und üblicherweise Unmengen von Pralinen verspeist.
Ein häufiges Element ist der Versuch, die geforderte Seitenzahl mit eigentlich ungeeigneten Mitteln absurde Wiederaufnahme der Handlung, Ausdehnung der Wörter "guuuuuuut" , "undsoweiterundsoweiter blablabla" zu erreichen.
Auch lässt sie z. Grace die Bibel abschreiben, damit sich die Seitenzahl erhöht. Dame Markham soll eine Parodie auf Barbara Cartland sein.
Maggie und Judy sind zwei ältere, konservative Frauen, die freiwillig für die Wohlfahrt arbeiten. Maggie hat erhebliche Vorurteile gegenüber Minderheiten oder gesellschaftlichen Randgruppen wie etwa Homosexuellen , Schwarzen , Ausländern , Obdachlosen und Waisenkindern.
Einmal macht das auch ihr Hund. Allerdings hat sie selbst homosexuelle Neigungen, kann es sich dies aber nicht eingestehen. Maggie kann als Parodie auf die ehemalige britische Premierministerin Margaret Thatcher gesehen werden.
Dudley, ein typischer britischer Durchschnittsverdiener mittleren Alters, hat sich per Katalog eine Frau aus Thailand bestellt, doch als Ting Tong ankommt, erfüllt sie keinerlei Kriterien seiner Bestellung.
Im Laufe der Serie stellt sich heraus, dass nicht nur ihr Name und ihr Geburtsort, sondern sogar ihr Geschlecht ein Schwindel sind.
Obwohl sie grundsätzlich unerwünscht ist, schafft sie es, Dudleys Leben komplett auf den Kopf zu stellen, indem sie seine absurden Fetischfantasien doch noch irgendwie befriedigen kann.
Zitat: "Ich soll also die Hauptrolle spielen, den Titelsong schreiben, den Titelsong singen …". Immer geht es um ein Angebot für eine Rolle, die daran scheitert, dass Waterman unbedingt den Titelsong schreiben und singen will sowie umgehend seinen stets gleich klingenden Vorschlag eines Titelsongs intoniert.
Ein Running Gag dabei ist, dass die Einstellungen, in denen nur Dennis Waterman zu sehen ist, an einem überdimensionalen Set gedreht wurden.
Jedes Mal bringt er seinem Agenten eine Kleinigkeit mit, die er ihm übergibt; z. Harvey und Jane sind ein Pärchen. Harvey stammt aus einer sehr reichen und adeligen Familie.
Die Familienmitglieder wirken völlig normal, meist beginnen die Szenen mit einer gepflegten Konversation, beispielsweise über die bevorstehende Hochzeit Janes mit Harvey.
Im Verlauf der Unterhaltung jedoch macht Harvey unter Wiederholung des kleinkindlich anmutenden Wortes "Happi" darauf aufmerksam, dass er hungrig sei.
Linda Flint ist Studienberaterin an einer britischen Universität und sehr organisiert. In den Sketchen, in denen sie auftritt, kommen meist junge Studenten in ihr Büro oder sitzen bereits vor ihrem Schreibtisch und unterhalten sich mit ihr.
Häufig sind ihre Anliegen simpel, beispielsweise in einen anderen Kurs zu wechseln oder einen bestimmten Aufsatz über ein anderes Thema schreiben zu dürfen.
Da Linda das allerdings nicht alleine entscheiden kann, ruft sie ihren Kollegen Martin an. Sie erläutert den Sachverhalt und nennt entweder gleich oder erst später den Namen des Studenten.
Das läuft dann darauf hinaus, dass Martin den Studenten nicht sofort identifizieren kann, weshalb Linda ihm die Person beschreibt.
Trägt sehr viel schwarz, Militärhosen. Emery ist eine stets freundliche ältere Dame, die zur wasserfallartigen Inkontinenz in aller Öffentlichkeit neigt.
Meist passiert ihr dieses Missgeschick, wenn sie eine Bekannte trifft und mit dieser ein Pläuschchen hält. Anfangs beginnt das Gespräch immer ganz harmlos, z.
Die Bekannte freut sich, Mrs. Emery zu treffen. Im Verlauf des Gesprächs hört man dann ein laut plätscherndes Geräusch und sieht, dass Mrs.
Emery unkontrolliert Wasser lässt. Das Gegenüber reagiert in dieser Situation meist sehr perplex und hat Schwierigkeiten, angemessen zu reagieren, da Mrs.
Emery die Tatsache komplett ignoriert bzw. Einem Arzt bestätigt sie ausdrücklich, dass ihre Blase in Ordnung sei. Am Ende jeder Folge in der 1. Der Name des Rekordversuches war auch gleichzeitig der Titel der jeweiligen Folge.
Eine Besonderheit ist, dass viele Figuren neue Züge erhalten, wie zum Beispiel die eigentlich konservative Maggie Blackamoor.
