The giant, singing baby is no more. Master of disguises Matt Lucas has quit BBC Two panel show Shooting Stars, according to The Sun.

The 36-year-old Little Britain star is apparently stepping down from his role as George Dawes to concentrate on a new project with comedy partner David Walliams.

“It’s the first time in six series that I can’t be in it and I’m obviously sad. I hope we can do something together again soon,” said Lucas

The cult show, which returned last year after a seven-year absence, will be back later this year for a new six-part run.

Ulrika Johnson and Jack Dee will again feature as team captains. It has not yet been announced whether Lucas will be replaced.

We’re hoping he will, by someone equally surreal. The dove from above? Jedward? Hmm, on second thoughts..
