First Look: ‘LIp Service’ Series 2 Cast

The BBC has released this new image from series two of lesbian drama Lip Service that has been filmed in Scotland by Kudos, Film & Television, and is due to air in the Spring.

Series two see’s the return of Ruta Gedmintas as edgy photographer Frankie, Laura Fraser as uptight architect Cat and Fiona Button as accident prone actress Tess. A new face, Anna Skellern, plays the straight talking Australian doctor, Lexy, who’s turning heads and attracting attention. As her professional life finally takes off Tess is trying to concentrate on her career but the distraction of romance may prove too much. Cat remains torn between her love for Frankie and her commitment to charismatic cop Sam (Heather Peace). However, with Lexy now entering the fray, it’s clear that life is going to get a lot more complicated for all of them.

Series two will introduce exciting new characters; Neve McIntosh (Bodies), Sinead Keenan (Being Human) and Alana Hood (Field Of Blood) join the seductive and compelling tale of modern twenty-something lesbians finding their way in life.

Also returning from series one is lads James Anthony Pearson as loveable author Ed and Emun Elliott as bad boy Jay are joined by Adam Sinclair (Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy) as irreverent, gay doctor.

Writer Harriet Braun says: “I’m delighted that this second series has given me a chance to develop more compelling stories for our characters as well as mixing things up with some new and intriguing faces.”
