Monty Python, one of Britain’s most well known and iconic comedy acts, are to reunite for a stage show.

The exact date and location of the event are expected to be confirmed at a press conference in London on Thursday at which all surviving members of the group will be present.

The last time Terry Jones, Michael Palin, John Cleese, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam came together was in 2009 for their 40th anniversary celebrations in New York.

The sixth member of the troupe, Graham Chapman died in 1989.

When it was first screened in 1969, Monty Python’s Flying Circus television series was a ground-breaking radical departure from traditional comedy sketch shows.

The group also made a series of highly successful and often controversial films.
