FANS of The Night Manager were thrilled when the BBC confirmed they are working on a second series.

But they will be even more delighted to know that writers are considering bringing back HUGH LAURIE’s character Richard Roper.

I can reveal they are toying with plot lines that would see the evil arms-dealer, who was arrested at the end of the first series, make a dramatic return.
The return of Laurie would set up a revenge reunion with TOM HIDDLESTON and OLIVIA COLMAN.
And veteran author JOHN LE CARRE — from whose same-titled 1993 novel the TV hit was adapted — is understood to have given his backing because Roper gets off scot-free in his book.

An insider said: “Hugh, Tom and Olivia all won Golden Globes for their roles in The Night Manager and there’s real desire to reunite them.
“Although most people will think Roper’s days were numbered, there’s ways to bring him back as he was not killed off.”

New miniseries are now being developed by production firm The Ink Factory — run by Le Carre’s sons.
The BBC teamed up with US broadcaster AMC to make series one, costing £20million, and are working together again now.
Last series, Colman’s spymaster Angela Burr recruits Jonathan Pine, played by Hiddleston, to infiltrate Roper’s organisation — and the Beeb was keeping the sequel secret until Danish director Susanne Bier revealed at a TV festival in Jerusalem last week that writers are working on it.

A BBC spokeswoman said: “The Ink Factory, BBC and AMC are in the early stages of developing a potential second series but nothing is definite yet.”
Female fans may especially like another look at Tom’s bum.

Gemma's up for a dance

SHE was a Saturday-night telly fixture with her stints on Casualty.
Now GEMMA ATKINSON has revealed she wants to appear in an earlier timeslot . . . as a contestant on Strictly.

The Emmerdale star said: “I’d love to do Strictly. I’ve never been asked before but it would be really great to learn how to dance.
“I’m not sure how I’d handle the high heels, though. I’m used to wearing my Converse, so that might be difficult!”
It’s easier than eating all those bugs on I’m A Celeb.

SOAPBOX

THERE are some serious legal repercussions in store on CORONATION STREET.
Bethany is told that Nathan has been wrongly arrested for assault and needs an alibi.
Fearing that he won’t make Sarah’s dinner, she calls into the police station and gives a false statement to secure his release.
Meanwhile, in EMMERDALE, there is cause for concern when Laurel and Gabby visit Ashley and spot him stuffing food into his pockets. Struggling to cope, Gabby bunks off school. It looks like they are all going off the rails . . .

PAUL HOLLYWOOD is always first to dive in to the contestants’ cakes on Bake Off.
But the TV chef was more hesitant when he was served up offal, calf’s tongue and even NOSTRIL while in Sicily.

Paul Hollywood was less than impressed to be served offal, calf's tongue and nostril while filming for City Bakes in Sicily
Paul was enjoying a tour of the island’s markets and bakeries in the capital Palermo for his new City Bakes series. But the colour drained from his face when he was served up the traditional meal at a backstreet restaurant.
Paul cried out “Mummy!” when he saw the dish of body parts before refusing to eat any of it.
An insider said: “It’s probably the first time Paul has ever refused to eat anything on TV. It looked pretty gross.”
I don’t blame him.


  • City Bakes starts next Monday on the Food Network at 9pm.
