From Wikipedia: "A new film, Carry On London, was announced in 2003 by producer Peter Rogers and producer James Black but remained in pre-production well into 2008. The script was signed off by the production company in late March 2008, and "centred on a limousine company ferrying celebrities to an awards show." The film had several false starts, with the producers and cast changing extensively over time. Only the rather unknown Welsh actress Jynine James remained a consistent name from 2003 to 2008. Danniella Westbrook, Shaun Williamson and Burt Reynolds were also once attached to the project. In May 2006 it was announced Vinnie Jones and Shane Richie were to star in the film, which was to be directed by Peter Richardson, though Ed Bye later replaced him as the named director. At the 50th anniversary party held at Pinewood Studios in March 2008, Peter Rogers confirmed that he was planning a series of Carry On films after London, subject to the success of the first.

In early 2009, Carry On London or Carry On Bananas was once again 'back on', with Charlie Higson attached as director, and a different more modern cast list involving Paul O'Grady (as the acidic Kenneth Williamsesque character), Jynine James, Lenny Henry, Justin Lee Collins, Jennifer Ellison (as the saucy Barbara Windsor type), Liza Tarbuck (Hattie Jacques), Meera Syal, James Dreyfus, and Frank Skinner (filling in the Sid James role). Despite new media interest and sets being constructed at Pinewood film studios, the film once again was put on hold, and the project was shelved after the death of Peter Rogers"

Yes, I still recommend the Carry Ons. Uniquely British, of their time certainly, but most contain some truth. I am not drunk

A rather inebriated Charles Hawtrey as a special guest on the 1976 Halloween edition of the children's quiz / game show 'Runaround'?

How was he able to be on a kids show tipsy? Bet half of those kids probably won't know who he was.

Carry On Cruising (1962)

I'm surprised this exchange got past the censor!

"Doctor: This afternoon I fight 15 bulls.
Marjoribanks: That's an awful lot of bull.
Doctor: Well, my father he breeds the famous fighting bulls, you know. Every year, 50,000 bulls he sends off by ship to South America.
Marjoribanks: 50,000 bulls?
Doctor: Si, si. Also every year, 20,000 more he ships off to France.
Marjoribanks: That's 70,000 bulls.
Doctor: Si, si. One of the biggest bullshippers in the business."

Interesting fact of the day:

Carry On actor Peter Butterworth was a POW during WW2 and he was interned in Stalag Luft 111. This was the place where both the great escape and the wooden horse took place. He played a part in both escape attempts.

Due to his 'look' he also wasn't deemed realistic enough as a prisoner to actually win a part in either filmed adaptations of The Great Escape or The Wooden Horse.

Ridiculous but true.

I didn't have to look this up either as i read an article on his war exploits in Yours Retro magazine a while back.
