First look pictures released for the second series of comedy series The Other One for BBC One and BBC iPlayer

Created and directed by award-winning comedian Holly Walsh (creator of The Other One series one, Motherland), who co-writes and executive produces the series with Pippa Brown (The Other One series one, Psychobitches), The Other One follows a girl called Catherine Walcott and another girl called Catherine Walcott – sisters who had no idea the other existed until their father dropped dead.

Series two sees further Walcotts emerging from the woodwork, with Cathy Walcott (Ellie White) and sister Cat Walcott (Lauren Socha) reeling from the news they have a brother called Callum (Christopher Jeffers). And that Cathy got off with him.

Meanwhile, Tess (Rebecca Front) and Marilyn (Siobhan Finneran) find themselves babysitting Callum’s mum Angela (Michele Austin) when she’s thrown out of her house by her shocked husband. Marilyn is suspicious of the new arrival, but Tess is too busy making extravagant plans for spending her inheritance to care.
