The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has announced plans to recruit LITTLE BRITAIN stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams for a guest appearance in his hit cartoon.

British sketch show Little Britain has proved to be a hit both in the UK and the US, and Groening is hoping to have its stars follow in the footsteps of The Office's Ricky Gervais by making a cameo alongside the Simpson family.

Groening says, "Matt Lucas and David Walliams are like living cartoons anyway."

Little Britain was voted best comedy for the second consecutive year at Wednesday's (14DEC05) British Comedy Awards, where Groening was one of the guest presenters.
