Monty Python will now perform 10 live shows in London.

The British comedy troupe - who announced earlier this month they had reformed for a one-off live performance - have added an additional five dates at The O2, which seats 20,000 people, due to public demand.

The initial 'Monty Python Live (Mostly)' show on July 1, 2014, sold-out in just 43.5 seconds and tickets for the subsequent four dates between July 2 and July 5 were snapped up in less than an hour by fans desperate to see John Cleese, 74, Terry Jones, 71, Terry Gilliam, 72, Michael Palin, 70, and Eric Idle, 70, perform together again.

Cleese is ''delighted'' with the popularity of the show and is excited their fans want to see a group of ''old people'' perform.

He said: ''The response to our planned reunion has been very, very silly. But, we're all touched that so many fans still want to see such old people perform. So we're delighted to be adding more dates to the run at The O2.''

The new dates will take place on July 15, 16, 18, 19 and July 20.

Tickets for the extra shows go on sale at on Friday (29.11.13) from 10am.
