Following last night's conclusion of Monty Python's ten-night farewell show at the O2 Arena, it's been announced that Python musical Spamalot will embark on a new UK tour next year.

The tour will see Joe Pasquale reprise his role as King Arthur alongside Bonnie Langford as The Lady of The Lake and Todd Carty as Patsy (all pictured).

It opens at Manchester Opera House from 15-24 January 2015, before visiting venues including Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Liverpool (full dates below).

The show's creator Eric Idle said: "The new production is funnier, it's more like a Python show. There are new costumes and new sets and a new director (Christopher Luscombe), so it's just got a whole different spirit to it."
