Ordinary Lies returns to BBC1 for a second six-part series with a totally new cast. Gone are Michelle Keegan, Max Beesley and co. In their place are Matt Di Angelo, Angela Griffin and a whole host of other faces you may recognise…
While the first series delved into the dark and secretive lives of colleagues at a car showroom, this time the spotlight will be cast on a group of employees at the call centre and warehouse of a sports sales company in Wales.
Fletch (Matt Di Angelo) is a warehouse picker who finds his happy marriage threatened when he reunites with his father.
“Fletch is an ordinary guy who has a very normal job in a warehouse – there’s a monotonous routine to his life. He has never known who his father is having always been told he’s a musician somewhere. He got married very young and sticking to his routine of life has brought him into a rut” – Di Angelo
Griff Rhys Jones plays Fletch’s long-lost father Patrick.
“He’s a successful man, although we don’t know what he does. He lives in a house, which Fletch comes to see him at, but sees Patrick with his wife and two daughters, one of whom is pregnant. We don’t really know too much about him other than the fact he knew Fletch’s mother” – Jones
Where do I recognise him from?
He’s a Welsh comedian, writer, actor and presenter, famous for his work with comedy partner Mel Smith such as Not on the Nine O’Clock News and Alas Smith and Jones and for the BBC’s Three Men series of travel adventures with Dara O Briain and Rory McGrath.
