Ruth Jones' Sky1 comedy 'Stella' has been renewed for a second series
Ruth Jones' 'Stella' has been renewed for a second series.
The Sky1 show - which was written by and stars the 'Gavin and Stacey' actress as the titular character - focuses on a working class single mother from Wales who embarks on a new love affair and Ruth is delighted it will return for at least ten more episodes.
She said: "I'm over the moon that Sky want more Stella. I'm looking forward to getting back to Pontyberry even though the place doen't exist."
Meanwhile, Sky1 have also ordered a second series of The Café - which tells the story of a group of friends in Weston-super-Mare- starring Ralf Little, who also co-wrote the script with Michelle Terry.
Ralf's 'The Royale Family's co-star Craig Cash will once again direct the new series of the show.
Michelle said: "It was enough of a shock to get series one, so to be given another chance is the most incredible opportunity. Now I just hope we don't balls it up."
Sky1 has previously announced second series for 'Spy', 'Trollied' and 'Mount Pleasant', while Sky Atlantic has recommissioned comedy 'This Is Jinsy'.
