New picture: Rik Mayall poses with Ed Bye and the Dice Productions team – talks of anger at Adrian quitting new Bottom

RikfingerYesterday Rik Mayall posed with Ed Bye and the team of Dice Productions, after recording their new short for Channel 4.
Rik looked relaxed and like his old cheeky self, still there is some anger gnawing at him, as is revealed in an interview with the Daily Mail today. He is still very dissapointed with Adrian quitting the new series of Bottom.
“The BBC came to us about reviving these characters and we wrote two episodes in which we were really old b******s and they were very funny and the BBC liked them. But then Ade changed his mind.
He said we weren’t old enough – I said that’s why it’s called acting. He wants to wait ten f*****g years until we’re older, but I won’t be able to see or walk by then. I loved working with him. I was on my knees laughing. But he wants to be a musician and he wants to talk about walls in Yorkshire. I’ve watched [Ade’s Britain,] oh, minutes of those shows. When he’s not being serious about Yorkshire walls he’s very funny. Especially when I’m beating him up. But good luck to him. Anyway, let’s not talk about that. Let’s talk about me.”
Rik will be on Jonathan Creek this Easter
