Series 3 of Rose Matafeo's sitcom Starstruck comes to BBC Three and BBC iPlayer on Monday 28th August.

Still living in London and working at the local cinema, Series 3 follows Jessie (Matafeo) as she explores a new single life having parted ways with film star Tom (Nikesh Patel). Two years on from the breakup, Jessie navigates the pressures of adulthood and is confronted with the consequences of her own choices as her friends move on to the next stages in their lives, while Jessie is left questioning what she is really looking for.

Co-written by Rose Matafeo, Alice Snedden and Nic Sampson, Series 3 also marks Matafeo and Snedden's directorial debut, while Minnie Driver reprises her role as Tom's agent Cath, and John Simm joins the cast.

The first two series of Starstruck, which are still available to watch on iPlayer, have notched up over 8.2m requests to date on the streaming platform.
