Speaking at a launch event for the series at BAFTA attended by HELLO! and other press, Dolly - who is also behind the best-selling book that the series is based on - said she "would love there to be a season two".

"The book is about your twenties, and we've honed in on a specific bit I think that the difference between a 24-year-old and a 27-year-old is enormous," she said before jokingly adding: "It's like dog years."

Dolly shared she would like to explore Nell and Amara's characters a bit more

She continued: "I feel like there are so many stories, there are so many things I want to know about the girls. I want to know more about Nell's family and Amara's love life - you know there are just so many things that I'm desperate to get into with all four of them, so I would love another series, please."

Elsewhere in the chat, Dolly also opened up about the decision to base the series loosely on her memoir rather than giving it a straightforward adaptation, which she described as "the most freeing thing that happened" when it came to translating it to screen.

As she explained: "The minute that I kind of decided to open that up and take the essence of the show, which is this kind of grand romantic story about female friendship, and a coming-of-age story for the protagonist, and a girl gang show with this group of girls who have just moved to London, then the rest of it was as imagined as I wanted it to be."
