The series, which focuses on a mum-of-three working within the adult film industry, sadly won't be returning for a second series. Speaking to HELLO!, a spokesperson confirmed that it was only ever intended to be a four-part series and so there were no plans for more episodes.

The new show has been well received by viewers, who took to social media to discuss the series. One person wrote: "Just finished episode three of #adultmaterial it's a tough watch but very good." Another fan added: "Watching #adultmaterial. Outstanding drama. Hayley Squires is a fantastic actor and the scenes with @KerryAGodliman are superb."

Hayley Squires plays Jolene in the popular show

Speaking to the Guardian, Hayley commented on her character's persona, noting the empowerment she feels as a result of her career choice. "There's such a life about her. She's noisy, even in her darkest moments […] I think she does feel empowered and I think there are a lot of women who do, too."

She added to Glamour: "With Jolene as far as I'm concerned, she's a feminist. She fights very hard for what she has. She works to better herself within her means. She confronts these men as well as the women. She goes after the women; she goes after herself in the end as well."

Did you enjoy the new series?

Fans were initially unsure about the series after some suggested that the trailer was misleading compared to the actual show. At the time, one person wrote: "I'm not being funny but all the previews looked like a story of a young powerful woman thriving in the adult industry and pure entertainment, not this dark, morally bankrupt head [expletive]."

Another viewer added: "Channel 4 love their dark programmes. It feels like as a viewer, it kind of feels by watching it you’re a part of the exploitation. The trailer blatantly mis-sold this."
