Bafta-nominated actress Zoë Wanamaker (Prime Suspect, Love Hurts, Girlfriends) joins the cast of high-concept comedy thriller Black Ops this Friday as the series continues on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

The penultimate episode of the series sees Dom (Gbemisola Ikumelo) and Kay (Hammed Animashaun) work their way into an old people’s home where they discover the true identity of a woman they have seen Superintendent Edwards (Felicity Montagu) visit.

At first glance, Celia Herrington (Wanamaker) appears to be a feeble, wheelchair-bound elderly lady, but Dom and Kay soon find out that she is anything but…

While posing as volunteers at Riverford Care Community, episode five of the series, created by Ikumelo and Akemnji Ndifornyen, follows Dom as she makes an unlikely elderly ally and sees Kay’s commitment to community service finally pay dividends - as a warmly received appearance at karaoke hour yields a discovery which suggests that whatever Clinton was investigating goes a lot deeper than the former community support officers could have ever imagined.

Images from the episode show Wanamaker as the mysterious Celia Herrington, as well as further guest appearances from Alex Macqueen (The Thick of It, The Inbetweeners) as Celia Herrington’s sidekick Marcus and Alan Ford (Snatch) as care home resident Sid.

Black Ops airs on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on 2nd June at 9:30pm.
