Suter – who played Edward Drummond in ITV’s Victoria – is joining returning Clique stars Synnove Karlsen, Sophia Brown and Rachel Hurd-Wood in the cast of the BBC3 show.

The first series of Clique, created by Skins writer Jess Brittain, followed Holly (Karlsen) and Georgia (Aisling Franciosi), two best friends who were drawn into a leading group of girls, with Sherlock star Louise Brealey at the helm. The story started out as a tale of friendship threatened by ambition but soon developed into a mystery thriller.

Series two centres around Holly’s encounter with a new clique of smart and magnetic young men who take an interest in her, and it’s not long before she finds herself heading down another rabbit hole.
