John Bishop's Britain has been given a second series by BBC One.

The Liverpudlian comic's mixture of stand-up and real-life stories proved a ratings hit for the broadcaster last year and will return later this year to focus on themes such as food, music, fashion, friends and pets.

"I am thrilled that BBC One have agreed to a second series and just hope that everyone enjoys it as much as the first one," said John Bishop.

Lee Hupfield, exec producer, said: "After such a successful first series we are delighted John Bishop's Britain has been recommissioned for second series. It's a fantastic feel-good family show and it's great to be working with him again."

BBC commissioning exec Karl Warner added: "John continues to go from strength to strength as a performer and has quickly established himself as part of the comedy elite on BBC One. We love working with him and think this second series is going to get even better."

John Bishop's Britain is a co-production between Objective Productions, part of the All3Media Group and Bishop's production company 3 Amigos.
