Dawn French and Emilia Fox returning for a second series of delectable drama Delicious.
“I am utterly delighted that there will be more of Delicious. It is that rare thing where everything from every department comes together well, and Dan is already cooking up some remarkable storylines. I can’t wait to be back in Gina’s apron, up to my elbows in flour and up to my neck in trouble. Bring it on!” – Dawn French
The return of Delicious follows a hugely successful first serving of the drama in December 2016, which delivered an average cumulative audience of 1.87 million, making it the most watched UK drama series on Sky 1 for the year.
The series saw Dawn French and Emilia Fox entangled in a compelling tale of love, sex, deceit and betrayal, and the second helping will reunite them with writer Dan Sefton.
Passionate cook Gina (French) was once married to Leo Vincent (Iain Glen), a successful entrepreneur, chef and hotel owner in Cornwall. Leo owes much of his success to Gina’s exceptional cooking, but since leaving her for the glamorous Sam (Emilia Fox), his business has continued to thrive.
In the first series we saw Sam have suspicions that Leo was having an affair, later confiding in Gina, thinking she is well-placed to relate to the situation, but later discovered that it’s Gina herself was the ‘other woman’! The secrets and scandals that spill out are proof that sleeping with another woman’s husband is never a good idea – even if he was your husband first. As Sam and Gina tried to fix their broken families, viewers watched to see if the friendship could rise from the ashes of betrayal.
“I am absolutely thrilled that there is going to be a second helping of Delicious! It was a delight to work on in every way and the response from the audience was such a joy. I can’t wait to be back working with Dawn and the wonderful cast and crew on more Delicious storylines from Dan. Thank you to Sky for inviting us back!” – Emilia Fox
