Veteran screen star Robert Vaughn is the latest celebrity lined up for the next series of cult British comedy sketch show LITTLE BRITAIN.

The 72-year old THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. star will play a transvestite "laydee" alongside the show's creators and stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams - after meeting the comics at a London party hosted by TV listings magazine the RADIO TIMES.

A source says, "They got on so well that Robert admitted he would like to appear in the next series of Little Britain.

"So don't be surprised if he pops up in a dress."

The hit BBC show has already featured guest appearances from SIR ELTON JOHN, George Michael and Robbie Williams, and Hollywood hunk George Clooney is also set for a cameo role in the next series.
