Adrian Edmondson joins Sara Pascoe sitcom

Alongside Juliet Stephenson, Cariad Lloyd and Scroobius Pip

Adrian Edmondson has joined the cast of Sara Pascoe’s sitcom Out Of Her Mind.

Chortle yesterday revealed that Juliet Stephenson was to play the comedian’s mum in the sitcom, which also features comedian Cariad Lloyd and Fiona Button as Pascoe's sister.

Now the BBC has released the full cast list, including the former Young Ones star, as well as poet and podcaster Scroobius Pip, Benidorm’s Sheila Reid and Jack Gleeson from Game Of Thrones.

The cast is rounded off by Navin Chowdhry, Sean Gilder, Tom Stuart, Jumayn Hunter, Cash Holland and Lorraine Ashbourne.

Out Of Her Mind subverts the traditional sitcom format by breaking out of the narrative for surreal asides and factual insight, some drawn from Pascoe's 2016 human behaviour book, Animal.

Over the series, the comic explores why everyone else is pairing up and having babies and sets out on a mission to understand them. She tries to prove that romantic love is mere chemicals and conditioning and doesn’t deserve our respect – while preparing for her sister’s wedding, and her best friend’s first pregnancy

Out Of Her Mind is also the first terrestrial television commission for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's production company Stolen Picture.
