Season 2 Synopsis
Written by Jocelyn Jee Esien (3 Non-Blondes), the show returns with a riot of sketches featuring some familiar faces from the first series, including Jiffy the over-zealous traffic warden and Mrs Omwukwopopo, the serial husband collector.
A host of new characters add to the anarchy, particularly a gaggle of elderly Jamaican women who enjoy nothing better than gatecrashing a good funeral.
We are also introduced to Prince William's latest girlfriend, whom he meets on a diplomatic tour of the Third World.
Viewers had better watch out as the second series of Little Miss Jocelyn is set to create even more havoc, with hidden camera stunts galore and the promise of an occasional celebrity cameo.
