MEET THE RICHARDSONS RETURNS TO DAVE THURSDAY 8TH APRIL

The second series of Meet The Richardsons is to return to Dave this Thursday, 8th April. The series comprises eight episodes, and two Christmas specials, and will follow real-life couple Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont as they embrace life in lockdown.

The first series of the fly-on-the-wall mockumentary was Dave’s second most-watched show through lockdown, attracting 1.13 million viewers on average, beaten only by the Red Dwarf feature-length episode The Promised Land.

Co-written by Beaumont with Tim Reid (Car Share), The Richardsons features the pair’s real-life family and neighbours, and has guest-starred Johnny Vegas, Jack Dee, Alan Carr and Rob Beckett among others.

Lucy Beaumont says: ‘So glad to be getting paid to have an argument again, lockdown has been weird living with someone who has spent his life practising social distancing and frequent hand-washing – if the Government advise wearing beige cardigans and being a tedious grump I know something has been going on.’

Jon Richardson adds: ‘It’s great news that there will be a second series of Meet The Richardsons. I can’t wait to give away the few private moments of my life that aren’t already in the public domain and welcome the crew back to The D&B with open arms. It was getting boring drinking alone in there anyway. Really. Fantastic stuff.’

Episode one of the new series airs Thursday 8th April 10:00 pm on Dave, or you can catch up on UKTV.
