Leslie Ash has hinted at a Men Behaving Badly reunion in future, explaining how the recent Friends reunion inspired the idea of the gang getting back together.
From 1992 to 1997, Leslie, 61, starred in BBC sitcom Men Behaving Badly as Deborah Burton alongside Martin Clunes, Harry Enfield, Neil Morrissey and former Strictly Come Dancing star Caroline Quentin.
The comedic show became a massive hit, resulting in fans still holding out hope decades later that it could make a comeback.
During Tuesday’s edition of Loose Women, Leslie said that she believes Men Behaving Badly ended at the right time.
However, she hasn’t ruled out the possibility of a reunion special, partially taking inspiration from the recent Friends reunion.
‘In the light of the recent Friends reunion, which was a massive global success, would that be something that would appeal to you to do something similar? Because I think people would love to see what you’d all got up to,’ Denise asked her.

‘Well yeah, we get asked all the time whether or not there’s going to be another series of Men Behaving Badly. And I mean… it stopped at the right time, I think, when it was right up there and everyone was really enjoying it,’ Leslie replied.

Nonetheless, when she saw the Friends reunion, that made her think that it would be ‘such a great idea’.
‘I saw the Friends reunion and I thought, oh gosh, this is such a great idea, ‘cause we’ve got so many Men Behaving Badly fans out there. And we did it with Quadrophenia for the 40th anniversary, we did a roundtable, we read scenes and also answered questions,’ the actor said.
‘It was just such good fun, and I thought – why don’t we do it with Men Behaving Badly? I think a lot of people would really like to see that. But it’s up to the other guys if they want to do it, and obviously Beryl Vertue, producer.’
After starring in Holby City in 2010, Leslie is set to reprise her role as Vanessa Lytton in an episode of Casualty.
This year she is also starring in an episode of BBC’s Doctors, following an 11-year hiatus from the small screen.
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
