He is Rowan Atkinson’s most commercially successful creation.
However, Mr Bean is unlikely to appear on our screens again in any new adventures.
Atkinson, 56, says he believes he is too old to play the bumbling character. Mr Bean first blundered on to television in an ITV series which ran for five years from 1990.
Despite the derision of some critics, the programme proved a huge ratings success, with viewing figures of more than 18million.
The character proved such a draw – even in the notoriously difficult U.S. market – that two films were made of his exploits, Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie in 1997 and Mr Bean’s Holiday four year ago.
