Kate Beckinsale backs new Porridge episode

Kate Beckinsale has welcomed the BBC's update to classic sitcom Porridge, in which her father starred.

Speaking to 5 live Afternoon Edition's Colin Paterson, the Underworld star said it would be "quite nice" to see a modern version featuring relatives of the original characters - although she said she wouldn't be taking part.

Her father Richard, who died when she was five years old, played Godber in the classic sitcom opposite Ronnie Barker.
