Series three of Cuckoo re-joins the Thompson family six months after Dale’s (Taylor Lautner) dramatic departure at Christmas.

Ken (Greg Davies) and Lorna (Helen Baxendale) are preparing for the birth of their new baby. Dylan (Tyger Drew Honey), much to Ken’s delight, is getting ready to fly the nest as he prepares to leave for university.

Rachel (Esther Smith) is heartbroken and pining for Dale, but has managed to salvage a questionable friendship with jilted ‘bestie’ Ben (Matt Lacey).

Life is slowly getting back to normal in Litchfield when a transformed Dale returns to throw more spanners in the family works.

Shane Allen, Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning, says: “Cuckoo is the quintessential BBC Three series – a grabby concept, world-class talent and writers destined for greatness.

“Can’t wait to see what new heights of comedic excruciation they concoct for Ken.”
