BBC has ordered a second series following the “unpredictable and dynamic” world of Charlotte Crosby.
Charlotte in Sunderland is produced by Chatterbox Media and and will air on BBC Three and the iPlayer later this year.
The 10 x 30 minute shows will pick up just after the conclusion of the first series, after she discovered she was pregnant with her first child (Alba) and her partner was in the process of moving from Manchester to the North East. During the eventful period, her mum was diagnosed with cancer and she coped with the death of her nana.
“Last year was a rollercoaster and the BBC and Chatterbox showed great sensitivity while filming some of the happiest and saddest moments of my life,” said Crosby.
“I will treasure it forever as a tribute to my lovely Nana Jean. Get ready for another amazing series which will bring everyone up to date with me Jake and Alba – and of course Mam and Dad. It will be full of lols and a few surprises!”
Series 1 of Charlotte in Sunderland averaged 300k (28 day / 4Screen) with 40% of this audience between the ages of 16-34. The BBC said it had strong iPlayer viewing (62%) and performed particularly well with viewers in the North of England.
“It is great to get Charlotte back once again giving viewers an access all areas pass to her entertaining world…the best bit is that off screen the team making it will be supporting local North East production talent develop – it’s a winning combo for sure,” added Nasfim Haque, Head of Content for BBC Three.
