BBC axes ‘Me and Mrs Jones’

BBC comedy fails to attract viewers!

‘Me and Mrs Jones’ writer Oriane Messina has confirmed on her twitter feed that the BBC One comedy series will not be returning for a second series.

“Sadly there wont be a 2nd series of MeandMrsJones. We loved making it & are sad not to be making any more,” the writer confirmed.

Messina also known for penning comedies, Campus, Green Wing and Smack the Pony explained the reason behind the axe to a fan as; “alas ratings were not high enough in the time slot but it was a v v hard slot against lots of live shows.”

She also had a word from the cast: “The actors wanted us to thank you for investing so much in Gemma and Billy.” Adding; “Your support has been amazing, making the show trend and being so loyal, thank you”

The six-part series starred Sarah Alexander, Nathaniel Parker, Robert Sheehan and Neil Morrissey, and premiered with ratings of 3.13m viewers in October, but had fallen to 1.72m by the final episode.
