Series 3 of Ability coming in February 2021

Recording series two in the studio....those were the days!

I'm very happy to be able to tell you that the third series of my BBC Radio 4 sitcom, Ability, will be broadcast weekly from Wednesday 10th February 2021.

For those of you who don't know, Ability is a sitcom about a disabled bloke called Matt. He can’t speak, and sometimes uses his disability to his advantage and can be a bit of a dick at times. So obviously it’s purely fictional!

He shares a flat with his best mate Jess (who he also fancies) and he has a very dodgy carer called Bob. Together they get up to quite a lot of mischief. In the past, they have decided to become drug dealers just to see if they could get away with it and set up a robot sex line to make a bit of money from lonely old men. You can expect more of this sort of thing in the third series too. 

You can catch up with series one and two over on BBC Sounds. 

Despite being taped remotely, with the cast in our homes, after plans for a studio taping in November had to be abandoned because of Covid, I still really enjoyed doing it. At least this way I don't have to get dressed!

I really enjoyed writing this series with Kat Butterfield and Daniel Audritt, and it was great to see the cast again. We always have a great laugh together when we're recording and this time was no different.

I'm looking forward to letting people hear what Matt, Bob and Jess have been up to in the last year or so. Make sure you tune in (or whatever the kids do these days!)

Well thanks for that one you made me laugh so much you almost made me choke on my water! 😂

I used to be able to do the "Cashier number 1 please" announcement so good that people would react when in line 😂😂. I can still do the voice the same but I think the person's changed since 🙄😅😅

Love your T-shirt too xx
