The second season of BBC One’s In the Club has started filming.
Created by Kay Mellor (The Syndicate, Band of Gold, Fat Friends), the pregnancy drama launched in August 2014.
The first season followed six very different couples who had bonded in the local parent craft class as they stumbled into parenthood together.
Featuring “more secrets, heartbreak, comedy and pathos”, Season 2 will be set ten months on and will feature the return of all six couples.
Some teasers have been revealed:
– Business-woman Roanna (Hermione Norris) tries to hide her past from young lover Simon (Luke Thompson), but as the reality of her choices becomes all too real, it’s only a matter of time before it all implodes.
– Bisexual Kim’s (Katherine Parkinson) love life is as complicated as ever with her ex-partner Susie (Tara Fitzgerald) and her relationship with Neil (Jonathan Kerrigan) in jeopardy as she struggles to be the perfect mum to baby Emily.
– With her husband Rick (Will Mellor) in prison, housewife Diane (Jill Halfpenny) is learning to cope on her own. But as his release draws near, she worries she’s become too independent.
– Things haven’t got any easier for spirited Jasmin (Taj Atwal) and her lovable husband Dev (Sacha Dhawan) since he left baby Amber in the van. Their overbearing mothers have moved in and refuse to leave – but they’re devastated to learn that’s the least of their worries.
– Life with a baby and a full-time job isn’t easy for caring midwife Vicky (Christine Bottomley) and when things go terribly wrong at work, it’s a matter of life and death and she’s caught in the middle.
– When an abandoned baby is found in the hospital loo it creates chaos on the maternity ward… and the search is on for the mother!
– After flushing the morning-after pill down the loo, what will happen to schoolgirl Rosie (Hannah Midgley) and her boyfriend Jude (Danny Breeze); how will they cope with no money and her father in care?
Executive producer Liz Kilgarriff commented: “Kay has once again created fantastic characters and stories which have, of course, attracted an enormously talented and stellar ensemble cast. In the Club captures the extraordinary drama that can happen to ordinary people in everyday life and the series is set to be yet another treat for our BBC One audience.”
