Rizzle Kicks’ Jordan Stephens and actor and comedian Keith Allen are to star in the second series of BBC Three’s Uncle.
The Baby Cow produced sitcom follows the darkly comic exploits of Andy (Nick Helm), an out-of-work musician who forges an unlikely alliance with his teenage nephew Errol (Elliot Speller-Gillot).
Jordan will feature in one episode of the new run, playing a character called Hugo who works in a recording studio. Hugo sneaks Uncle/Andy and Errol into the studio as Andy tries to record an entry for a lucrative song contest.
Keith (The Comic Strip Presents, Robin Hood) will portray Uncle’s estranged dying Uncle Frank. Andy is trying to befriend his long- lost relative in the hope of a mention in his will, leading to an unforgettable family reunion in Frank’s cabin.
Also appearing in the new series is comic writer and actor Martin Trenaman, best known for his role as Ben Cooper, Simon’s Dad in The Inbetweeners and as Lance in Phoneshop. He will play Andy’s landlord George. Raquel Cassidy (Downton Abbey) also guest stars as Andy’s cougar Teresa.
The new series of Uncle begins Tuesday 10th February at 10pm on BBC Three.
