Paul 'Wicky' Wickstead is set to encounter more eccentrics in his job as a crime scene cleaner.
Greg Davies will be returning for a second season of black comedy series The Cleaner on Friday 24th March at 9:30pm, the BBC has confirmed.
The anthology show will once again see the Taskmaster host take on the lead role of crime scene cleaner Paul 'Wicky' Wickstead, who meets all sorts of oddballs and eccentrics while going about his macabre day job.
As with the first run, an impressive supporting cast has been assembled for the follow-up, with the likes of Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing), Harriet Walter (Succession), and Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral) all set to appear in individual episodes.
Other famous faces set to feature in the six-parter include comedian Roisin Conaty (After Life), Zoë Wanamaker (Britannia), John MacMillan (House of the Dragon), Alex Lawther (Andor) and Susannah Fielding (This Time With Alan Partridge).

"I’m so thrilled that Wicky is back for another round of clean ups and delighted that he is doing so on BBC One," Greg Davies previously announced in a statement.
