Review

Michaela Coel’s bold, very rude urban comedy Chewing Gum is back after the small matter of her Bafta win. And while her character Tracey Gordon is feeling a little lovesick tonight, there are no signs of second series blues.

It’s a delicious ship-in-a-bottle two-hander between Tracey and her gentle ex-boyfriend Connor (Robert Lonsdale) as the duo deal with their series-one break-up in the shop where she works. It’s a clever (if, perhaps, surprisingly restrained) way of both catching up and moving the story on.
The awkward miscommunication, as Tracey pretends to have a celebrity squeeze, is played to full comic effect, but it allows for touching and tender moments, too.

Coel’s near-flawless writing and a performance that brilliantly captures her character’s abiding innocence and sweetness amid all the filth and mayhem make for top-drawer stuff.

Summary

Tracey discovers Connor has a new girlfriend, so she ropes Ola into helping her convince her ex-boyfriend she has moved on. Return of the comedy, starring Michaela Coel.
