Matt Lucas is moving to America

A big bye-bye to Matt Lucas, who is leaving us for America.

It’s happening a lot these days, we have these truly great British stars who decide that life over the pond might be better, and they just up and leave us. Boo-hoo.

The 37-year-old actor is off to try and make it big in the US – but he won’t forget his friends.

“I’m going to the states after my TV series, the Matt Lucas Awards, to try and make a go of it out there. But I won’t forget my friends. I’ll still be walking my dog in Hyde Park at some point,” he said.
