Well good news

Second series for Lee Nelson

Lee Nelson's Well Good Show has been given a second series by BBC Three.

The station has confirmed that it has commissioned another series from character comic Simon Brodkin, expected to air early next year.

A spokesman said: ‘BBC Three continues to give new writers and comedians their first break in TV. On the back of a hugely successful first series, Simon Brodkin returns with… Lee Nelson's Well Good Show.’

The first seven-part series, made by the TV arm of Brodkin’s agents Avalon, has only just finished airing. It performed well for the channel, attracting up to 700,000 viewers per broadcast, as well as being a hit on iPlayer.

The second series will feature more of the chavvy character’s trademark excitable banter, overseen by Nelson’s best mate, and ‘fat legend’, Omelette.

The commission was announced at the launch of BBC Three’s autumn schedule, which also includes a second series of Dan Clark’s How Not To Live Your Life, the new twentysomething relationship sitcom Him And Her, a sixth series of Ideal, a third series of Russell Howard’s Good News and Simon Bird’s new entertainment show The King Is Dead.
