TV land: Soiree affair; in the pipeline..

Byline: NICOLA METHVEN and POLLY HUDSON

BRILLIANT news! The Beeb is making an Abigail's Party-style drama called The Dinner Party, starring Timothy Spall.

Marking the 30th anniversary of the Mike Leigh classic, the film will feature three couples from a Hertfordshire village coming together for a "nightmare evening from hell".

And the updated version will also contain "monstrous" characters just like Alison Steadman's brilliantly awful Beverley. Drama boss John Yorke says: "It's a no-holds-barred take on the British class system."
