Bonnar said: “I’m completely overjoyed that Guilt is getting a second series.

“Neil has crafted four amazing scripts with some cracking new characters and an immensely involving plot, full of twists and turns.

“He’s really putting us through the mill – and of course, I’m over the moon to be working with Jamie again.

“We’ve assembled a fantastic crew – many returning from series one – and I know they’re just as excited as us to be a part of this wonderful show.”

Forsyth, who also acts as executive producer for the show, said: “I’m delighted that we’ve been given the opportunity to continue the Guilt story.

“Once again, we have an amazing cast and creative team and I can’t wait to see them bring the scripts to life.”
