Radio review: Little Brexit, Radio 4

I'm not sure if they said it would never happen, but it didn't seem likely to happen. Yet Brexit may not have brought the country together but it did bring Matt Lucas and David Walliams back together for a special one-off Little Britain reunion 20 years after their Radio 4 debut, complete with numerous familiar characters, old cast members and the booming voice of Tom Baker bellowing "Everybody loves Brexit".
