Presenter Jonathan Ross has signed up to host a one-off TV special to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the BBC series Dad's Army.

The show, Jonathan Ross Salutes Dad's Army, will include some of the series' stars, its creators and celebrity fans.

The comedy series, which ran from 1968 to 1977, was about the Home Guard in World War II.

Dad's Army was created by Jimmy Perry and David Croft, the duo who also wrote It Ain't Half Hot, Mum.

Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier and Clive Dunn starred in Dad's Army.

Producers of the one-hour special want to hear from fans of the TV comedy and anyone who met the cast and crew.
