There may be some hope for Monty Python fans who missed out on reunion tickets - Michael Palin has hinted that the group may perform a smaller warm-up show.

The comedian also admitted that he would prefer to play smaller, "more intimate" venues, rather than the "huge" London 02 arena.

Palin told BBC Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon: "We may do a theatre warm-up... to see how the show moves along."

"My total ideal would be to play Dead Parrot sketch to 500 people rather than 15,000."
