Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are reportedly planning a fourth series of The Trip.

The TV series sees the comic actors playing semi-fictionalised versions of themselves, travelling by car to conduct a series of luxurious restaurant reviews for a national newspaper.

As first reported by website Chortle, Steve Coogan revealed the news on the latest episode of the Off Camera With Sam Jones podcast. He confirmed to the host: "We're doing another trip next year, which is The Trip To Greece."

The series will again be directed by Michael Winterbottom, with Chortle reporting that Sky have commissioned the series.

Series 3 ended with Coogan venturing into North Africa, running out of petrol and being approached by what appeared to be a group of ISIS militants.

The Trip started on BBC Two in 2010 with a storyline set in Yorkshire. The Trip To Italy followed in 2014. Sky Atlantic took over making the show in 2017, producing The Trip To Spain.

Coogan, who stars in Laurel & Hardy film Stan & Ollie, out in January, is currently filming Greed with Winterbottom - a comedy film about a retail billionaire. He is also due to return to the BBC early in 2019 with a new Alan Partridge sitcom. This Time With Alan Partridge was filmed earlier this year.

Further details about The Trip To Greece are expected to be revealed in due course.
