Catherine opened up about a potential second series 

Catherine Tyldesley stars in the series and has opened up about wanting a second series. Chatting to Digital Spy, she explained: "I hope it does get a season two because it really deserves it... [Martin's] a likeable character, so I think that is what people are going to want from season two – everyone's just going to love Noel's character and hopefully be hooked with the writing and crave more of it."
