The BBC has ordered a second series of the Sarah Millican Television Programme – just two weeks after the first run aired.
She announced the commission on her Twitter feed this morning, posting: ‘NEWS!! Thrilled to report that The Sarah Millican Television Programme will be back for a 2nd series. *runs around clapping and jumping*’
She later added: 'I am thrilled everyone liked the show enough to invite us back! It was a joy to make the first series, with such a great team of people and I can't wait to get cracking on the second.'
The new seven-part run will kick off with a Christmas special.
The first series of her chat and stand-up show was a ratings hit when it launched last month, attracting 2.1million viewers for the first episode – up a mammoth 81 per cent on the average figure the channel gets for the 10pm Thursday-night slot.
However, the figures slipped back a bit to around 1.5 million for later episodes, but still up on the slot average.
Reviews were largely positive, too, with critics instantly warming to Millican, even if they saw problems with the format.
The six-episode series was a co-production between Graham Norton’s So Television and Millican's own company, Chopsy Productions.
