BBC One has commissioned a second series of John Bishop’s Britain.
Another six half-hour episodes are due to air this summer, and will again feature a mix of stand-up and real life stories from celebrities and members of the public on universal themes.
Bishop said: ‘I am thrilled that BBC One have agreed to a second series and just hope that everyone enjoys it as much as the first one.’
The first series attracted an average of 4.2 million viewers to its Saturday night slot.
BBC commissioning executive Karl Warner added: ‘John continues to go from strength to strength as a performer and has quickly established himself as part of the comedy elite on BBC One. We love working with him and think this second series is going to get even better.’
The show is a co-production between Peep Show makers Objective Productions and Bishop’s own production company 3 Amigos.
