The BBC has announced that the Warwick Davis-starring mockumentary Life's Too Short is to return this Spring for a one-off special, in which Davis will be reunited with his Willow co-star Val Kilmer.

The 60-minute special will also see writer-directors Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant back on screen, with Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin and Shaun Williamson also reprising their 'roles' as Davis tries to help the trio resurrect their careers.

Davis said of the special: "I am thrilled to be able to step back into Warwick's shoes again for this special. Ricky and Stephen's scripts are always a gift to play and the inclusion of Val Kilmer is nothing short of genius."

Gervais said: "I can't wait to work on the Life's Too Short special with the likes of Keith Chegwin. It will make a nice change from working on The Muppet Movie opposite weird little things with squeaky voices."

Merchant added: "I think fans of Willow are going be really surprised to see Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer reunited on screen. Almost as surprised as Val will be when he finds out what we're paying him."
