Little Britain Lucas 'Deflated' By Family Rejection

LITTLE BRITAIN star MATT LUCAS still feels "deflated" after his family criticised his comedic talent as a boy. The 33-year-old star of the hit British TV series spent his early years rehearsing comedy routines - much to the irritation of his family. Lucas, who has won countless awards for his work on Little Britain, still feels dejected when he recalls how his family knocked his talent and accused him of showing off. He says, "I used to record audio tapes of myself performing when I was five or six and I listened to one recently. It was me doing bits of comedy and impressions and singing daft songs. "I remember thinking at the time how witty and talented I was. Then you hear a relative saying, 'He's just showing off!' That really deflated me, even now as an adult."
