However, the Reverend Geraldine Granger’s big return left some viewers emotional after a touching tribute was made to former co-star Emma.

Emma – who was best known for playing loveable Alice Tinker in the long-running BBC sitcom – passed away in 2018.

On a zoom call, Geraldine recalled happy memories from her time in Dibley when old clips appeared on-screen including Alice and Hugo Horton’s wedding.

Geraldine said: “When I think back I’ve had some difficult moments, that’s for sure. But it’s the happy things I remember like, dancing with Darcey Bussell and joining an idiot and a simpleton in holy matrimony.”

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “Nice to see the Vicar… not the same without Alice barging in though #TheBigNightIn.”

Another said: “All this is doing is making me realise how much I miss The Vicar of Dibley.

“Wouldn’t be the same without Owen, Alice and Frank, though.”

A third added: “ dunno why but just seeing @Dawn_French as The Vicar of Dibley again made me cry. I just adore her #TheBigNightIn.”Roger Lloyd Pack, who played Owen Newitt, also died in 2014, while John Bluthal, who played Frank Pickle, passed away in 2018.

Dawn strapped on the dog collar again to deliver a “message of hope” during lockdown.

The Big Night In featured the biggest stars of showbiz for an unforgettable night of entertainment.

The three-hour show – that brought Children in Need and Comic Relief together – helped raise £27,398,675 for the vulnerable amid the coronavirus crisis.

Other iconic moments included Peter Kay’s return to TV and a Little Britain reunion.
