The series first aired on Channel 4 in 2011 and since then has produced six series with 37 episodes. The recent sixth series became Channel 4’s biggest comedy series in over a decade.

Dan Grant, licensing director at Danilo, said: “Friday Night Dinner has become a firm favourite in our company, with its hilarious banter and brilliant characters. At its core, the show is about family and connections, bringing the household together, around a table. 

“We are thrilled to be working with the team at Direct to Retail, exclusive licensing agency, Big Talk, Robert Popper and the Friday Night Dinner team to create these new products.”

Friday Night Dinner is produced by Big Talk and Popper Pictures.
