You might have thought it wasn't possible; you might have hoped it wasn't possible but Little Britain is coming to PS2 and PC in January, with a PSP version due later in the year.
Based on the BBC sketch show, the game will follow an episode of the programme with each character having to complete their own minigame and deliver their catchphrase before moving on to the next scene and joke. And much like anyone watching the last series, their objective is to reach the
