BBC orders second series from sketch troupe

Gein's Family Giftshop are to make a second series of their BBC Radio Wales sketch show.

The sketch troupe – who won the Chortle best newcomer award in 2014 – have landed another three half-hour specials, which will air from the end of August.

Kath Hughes, James Meehan and Edward Easton star in the series, which they co-write with Kiri Pritchard-McLean.

Made by production company Rubber Chicken, the commission follows the first run of three episodes which aired last summer.

The team said: 'We're so glad that the gullible, capable idiots at Rubber Chicken have hoodwinked the relentlessly supportive people at BBC Radio Wales, yet again.

'We loved making our three specials last time and recording them at our old university was the perfect way to ensure our audience were allowed to drink and smoke inside.

'We're looking forward to more emails from compliance about the words "spaff" and "gypsy" and just generally squandering the licence fee before the Tories kill off the BBC entirely, just as soon as they've finished getting through all those disabled people.'

The first series, which has just been repeated, had episodes based around surviving on a remote island, visiting haunted locations, and a murder investigation. That final episode of the original series is still available on iPlayer for one more day only.

The second series will be recorded in Salford on June 22. Click here for free tickets.
