A short while later, she revealed that David and good friend Michael Sheen will be coming together - albeit virtually - for the second series of the popular lockdown drama.

The new series will see Michael and David attempt to navigate their "new normal" at home with their increasingly exasperated families whilst simultaneously trying to tackle the world of "virtual Hollywood" and their ever more fragile egos.
