Starstruck is an absolute must-watch new series from BBC Three, which follows loveable twenty-something Jessie who has a one night stand with handsome stranger Tom on New Year's Eve - only to find out that he is actually a famous actor. The show has been an acclaimed hit - but will it be back for more episodes?

Chatting about the news on the Eating Fried Chicken In The Shower podcast with James Nokiseshe said: "We were on our way to do a read through with the whole cast and we were a week out from shooting.

"I got in that morning. And the producer came out of a meeting and was like, 'So, little change of plans, we are shifting all of the filming to October and you are going to write a second series of the show.' And so we could possibly do two series back-to-back." BBC has declined to comment on season two - yet!

Viewers have been quick to discuss the series on Twitter, with one writing: "One episode in and I'm hooked! Such a smart, funny, brilliantly-acted love story. You gotta check it out, World, you gotta!" Another added: "Racing through #Starstruck - absolutely splendid. A line in ep 4 had me doubled over with laughter." A third person wrote: "OK #Starstruck is a freakin’ delight from start to finish. Notting Hill meets Fleabag, with warmth and heart and silliness and adult humour and razor sharp dialogue. Bravo @Rose_Matafeo . Just what I needed."
