The guest stars joining Greg Davies in Series 3 of The Cleaner have been revealed.

Joining the character of Paul 'Wicky' Wickstead on screen this time will be Inside No. 9 star Steve Pemberton, Sharon Rooney (Jerk), Ghosts actor Ben Willbond and Conleth Hill (The Power Of Parker).

Written by and starring Greg Davies, the new series of The Cleaner will continue to follow Wicky, a state-certified cleaning technician with a very special field of work - he is a crime-scene cleaner responsible for the removal of any signs of death.

A preview picture showing Wicky meeting a lighthouse keeper played by Conleth Hill has been released to tease the series.

The guest cast for the new six-part series will also include Chaneil Kular, Derek Griffiths, Gemma Whelan, Harry Peacock, Paula Wilcox, Philippa Dunne, Rebekah Staton, Rosie Cavaliero, Sheila Reid, Sophia Dall'Aglio, Vicki Pepperdine and Viraj Juneja. Zita Sattar returns in her role as PS Ruth Edwards.

Greg Davies says: "I am so delighted to be back wading around in blood. We have made sure that Wicky has some bizarre characters to deal with this series. Looking forward to sweating in a scene of crime suit and wearing the earring that my nieces find so cringe."

Vivien Muller-Rommel from production company SHUK (Studio Hamburg UK) adds: "We're immensely proud to be back, especially with the best of British comedy joining us on screen. Season 3 is hugely ambitious. In fact, we have so many cast members this time around that you really have to look for the tall, big guy to make sure he's still in it."

Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy for the BBC, comments: "We couldn't be happier to introduce our fantastic cast for the upcoming season of The Cleaner. Greg and SHUK have done a terrific job finding some top comedy talent for Wicky to bounce off, figuratively speaking."

Series 3 of The Cleaner will be on BBC One later this year.
