THE BBC has officially started production on a new series of one of its beloved comedies.

The show, which The Independent hailed as the 'comedy everyone should be watching' and a 'comic masterpiece' by The Telegraph, offers an intimate observation and absurd exposé of a modern British family trying their best at life, albeit everyone is annoying each other while trying to do so. 

Most of the time, things never go to plan with the Jessops. 

However, their unbeatable spirits see them fight through and experience unexpected moments while laughing in the face of disaster.

The stars returning to the show include Jim Howick from Ghosts, Katherine Parkinson, who featured in The IT Crowd and Gavin & Stacey star Alison Steadman alongside Freya Parks, Jude Collie, Mica Ricketts and Tori Allen-Martin from London Kills.
