First-look pictures of the next instalment of Sally Wainwright’s Bafta-winning Last Tango in Halifax have been released, ahead of the much-loved drama’s return to BBC One in 2020.

Series leads Anne Reid, Derek Jacobi, Nicola Walker and Sarah Lancashire are seen reunited with Timothy West, making his return to Last Tango In Halifax.

Alan and Celia are now seven years into their marriage but, having moved into a desirable bungalow with stunning views across the Calder Valley, they aren’t quite seeing eye to eye. It isn’t just their differing politics that are a source of tension; Alan’s new supermarket job brings an unexpected challenge in the form of a wild local lad, and at Far Slack Farm, Gillian faces trouble with a giraffe.

Meanwhile, John is back on the scene, and Caroline finds herself entangled in an emotional debacle with someone at work.
Into all of this jets Alan’s brother Ted on holiday from New Zealand. But it turns out he’s only bought a one-way ticket… and he hasn’t come alone.

Also returning for the new series are Ronni Ancona as Judith, Josh Bolt as Raff, Dean Smith as William, Louis Greatorex as Lawrence, Paul Copley as Harry, Katherine Rose Morley as Ellie, Felix Johnson as Angus, and Rachel Leskovac as PC Cheryl.

Caroline’s daughter Flora, now five years old, will be played by Issacah June Zaman Hatzer, with Calamity, now age seven, played by Tilly Kaye.

Sally Wainwright, creator and writer, says: “Yet again the entire Last Tango cast has proved to be so wonderful together, so uplifting, heart-warming, touching and funny, as they explore Celia and Alan’s relationship further, under the brilliant breath of fresh air that Gareth Bryn’s direction has given them.”
