Sketch duo Lazy Susan have completed filming on their TV sketch show series, which is coming to BBC Three in 2022.

Following its debut as a Comedy Shorts pilot in 2019, Lazy Susan is new set to return for four more episodes, each fifteen minutes long.

Made by Tiger Aspect, the series has just finished shooting on location in Watford, with a first-look photo revealed today of stars Freya Parker and Celeste Dring in character.

It's also been confirmed that the supporting actors in the series will include James Acaster, Lou Sanders, Kiell Smith-Bynoe, Jason Forbes, Catherine Bohart, John Kearns, Evelyn Mok, Luke McQueen, Sunil Patel, Shivani Thussu, Ellie Kendrick, Rajiv Karia, Anna Leong Brophy, Laura White and Phil Dunning.

The producers confirm: "Freya and Celeste (Lazy Susan) return with well-loved characters from the BBC Three pilot, including Megan and Michaela who 'don't want any drama' and an achingly whimsical French woman, alongside some brand-new creations - a pair of inhumanly peppy Radio DJs, a couple of lads from Middlesbrough - all brought to life with joyful, sharply-observed performances. Expect smart commentary on our modern world and people falling over. Welcome to the world of Lazy Susan - as inviting as a warm bath, as unpredictable as a soufflé. Sketch comedy with heart, soul and just the right amount of weird."

Celeste Dring and Freya Parker comment: "We couldn't be more grateful to everyone who worked so hard on this show, especially our wildly talented director Molly Manners. Thank you BBC for the opportunity and the free car!"

David Simpson from Tiger Aspect comments: "Freya and Celeste are two of our very best comic performers and they are on top form in this new series. It's fantastic that the BBC continue to support sketch comedy and I'm so thrilled audiences are going to be treated to more Lazy Susan brilliance and originality."

Commissioning editor Simon Wilson adds: "Freya and Celeste's unforgettable array of characters are beautifully written and utterly hilarious. We can't wait for the new series to bring BBC Three viewers a host of brilliant new creations alongside old favourites."

A transmission date for Series 1 will be announced in due course.
