Wrapped-up in a light brown cardigan and peach floral dress, Tubbs aka Pemberton, encapsulated Winslet's 'I'm flying' scene perfectly for the Empire magazine photo shoot.?

Meanwhile, Shearsmith takes Dicaprio's place as he portrays a grimacing Edward.

The hilarious recreation prompted?Sherlock's Mark Gatiss to say: 'Edward should be pushing Tubbs off the ship' as he watched the duo get into full character for the snap. ?

The black comedy ran for three series, with the fictional town of Royston Vasey conceived as a framework to house sketches concerning an eclectic array of oddballs, from ghoulish shop-owners Tubbs and Edward, to freak-wrangler/wife-kidnapper Papa Lazarou, to shady butcher Hilary Briss.?

Now, Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson have reunited to celebrate their twentieth anniversary with three brand-new episodes in The League of Gentlemen Anniversary Specials on BBC Two.

Mark revealed plans to bring back the series last year, saying the rise of Brexit made the revival more likely.?

He said earlier this year: ?'Increasingly we have become a local country for local people and I wonder if there is something Brexity in us that we can do.'?

Shearsmith later added: 'It was borne out of us wanting to spend some time with each other again because we never quite do it anymore.?

'We meet each other all the time in separate configurations, but it's never more fun than when we're all together. We cry with laughter.'

The new shows will focus on 'a threat to Royston Vasey' and ignores what happens in the film.?

'There's an inevitable, quite pleasing melancholy about where they might have got to. That's very much the flavour of it,' said Gatiss.?

The Doctor Who screenwriter also draws parallels to the real world. 'Part of the over-arching story is a sort of response to where this country's got to. I think Britain's become Royston Vasey.?

'We've become a local country for local people: 'There's nothing for you here.' That seems to be the message we're projecting to the world. So I think Britain seems to have caught up with us, in a strange sort of way. But obviously Royston Vasey is its own particular thing.'?

The League Of Gentlemen airs on 18, 19, 20 December at 10pm on BBC Two. This month’s Empire magazine is on sale on Thursday.?
