The 31-year-old actress debuted her comedy sketch show last year, when she tackled issues such as dating, image and growing up through a set of stand-up routines with sketches and impressions.

Emily said: "I had the best time making and filming this series. It was the stuff of dreams and I am ecstatic to get to do it again.

"I have so many more sketches and impressions that I can’t wait to share with the viewers, my family on the other hand may want to cover their ears (again). If they thought the last series was bum clenchingly raucous, wait until they see this series. It’s going to be a hoot."

The first series achieved the biggest audience for a female lead stand-up show in 2020 and saw Emily impersonate 'This Morning' presenter Holly Willoughby, 'Loose Women's Stacey Solomon and her 'Celebrity Juice' co-star Keith Lemon.

Looking forward to the new series, Paul Mortimer, the head of ITV's digital channels, said: "Emily is an exceptional talent whose versatility as a comedy actress and hilariously self-deprecating sense of humour resonated with our viewers. We are delighted to be bringing a brand-new series to ITV2.”

Emily used the first series of her show to break down various taboos, including the stigma attached to women who have one-night stands.

She said: "Discussing one-night stands shouldn't be such a terrible thing as a woman.

"Blokes are allowed to talk about them until they’re blue in the face so I’m just, like, whatever.

"It’s part of being single, it’s part of your dating life. Sometimes one-night stands can be a great thing, sometimes they’re a disaster and I think everyone can relate to that."
