First look: BBC’s The Other One returns for Season 2

The Other One is coming back to BBC One for Season 2 and new images give us a first look at the show’s return.
Created and directed by comedian Holly Walsh (creator of The Other One series one, Motherland), who co-writes and executive produces the series with Pippa Brown (The Other One series one, Psychobitches), The Other One follows a girl called Catherine Walcott and another girl called Catherine Walcott – sisters who had no idea the other existed until their father died.
Season 2 sees further Walcotts emerging from the woodwork, with Cathy Walcott (Ellie White) and sister Cat Walcott (Lauren Socha) reeling from the news they have a brother called Callum (Christopher Jeffers). And that Cathy got off with him.
Meanwhile, Tess (Rebecca Front) and Marilyn (Siobhan Finneran) find themselves babysitting Callum’s mum Angela (Michele Austin) when she’s thrown out of her house by her shocked husband. Marilyn is suspicious of the new arrival, but Tess is too busy making extravagant plans for spending her inheritance to care.
Elsewhere, guest star Caroline Quentin returns as over-the-top Auntie Dawn, and Cathy’s ex-fiance Marcus (Amit Shah) is continuing to loiter.
A comedy about what happens when you discover your dead dad has a secret family, The Other One is a love letter to siblings, mothers and crap dads.
“This gentle tale of two women helping each other through grief is a fresh, funny comedy,” we
