Channel 4 has confirmed that 'Friday Night Dinner: 10 Years And a Lovely Bit of Squirrel' will air on May 28, following three fan-favourite episodes, as voted by viewers of the show.

The upcoming documentary will feature some of the most memorable moments in the history of the sitcom - which tells the story of a Jewish family, dad Martin (Paul Ritter,) mum Jackie (Tamsin Greig), and sons Adam (Simon Bird) and Jonny (Tom Rosenthal) Goodman, who gather every Friday for a Shabbat meal - as well as behind-the-scenes footage from the set.

The one-off programme will also feature exclusive interview with various cast members, who will recall some of their favourite moments.

What's more, a host of celebrity fans - including Claudia Winkleman, Joe Thomas, David Baddiel and Jessica Hynes - will recall their personal highlights from the show over the last decade.

'Friday Night Dinner: 10 Years And a Lovely Bit of Squirrel' will be dedicated to the sitcom's late star Paul, who died of a brain tumour in April, aged 54.

Simon recently paid a glowing tribute to the late actor on Twitter.

In a series of tweets released via his co-star Tom's Twitter, he said: "Not even going to touch the acting. That goes without saying. He was the best in the business.

"What’s less well known is that he was also the Platonic ideal of a green room companion: unfailingly generous (with praise, snacks, the Guardian Sport section); unendingly thoughtful (he would set up shop on the floor if he knew there were going to be more actors than chairs in

"that day); and undeniably cool (calm and collected in his flat cap, but an absolute coiled spring if there was a game in the offing).

"He was such a peaceful presence but throbbing with intelligence and - let’s not beat around the bush - entirely capable of a hilariously indiscreet and filthy broadside when in the mood.

"I think I’ll always aspire to be like Paul. I guess that’ll happen when someone pretends to be your Dad for 10 years. I feel unbelievably fortunate to have spent so much time in that green room and hope his real bambinos know how much his fake bambinos loved and looked up to him. (sic)"
