Jason Manford was injured at the BBC for ruining the sitcom Scarborough, but has hinted it could return one day.
The show – created and written by Derren Litten, 51, who previously had success with Benidorm – aired just one series in 2019, not refreshing for a second.
The decision was quite controversial at the time, seen by some as “classic” as the series was seen as a “working class” sitcom for viewers. middle-age.
And now the cast of Manford, 40, – who stars on the show alongside Catherine Tyldesley, 38 – who stars on Coronation Street – has encouraged the prospect of a second series.
“I still think it’s a bad decision,” he said. “Someone makes those decisions in an office somewhere.” However, the comedian teased: “Nothing ever dies [though]. “
Scarborough, which is broadcast on BBC One, follows a group of friends who regularly meet for karaoke at a pub in a seaside resort, located in North Yorkshire.
Other cast members on the show include Claire Sweeney, 50, and Jake Canuso, 52 – both of whom have appeared previously in the Litten creator Litten’s first sitcom Benidorm on ITV.
