RHOD GILBERT'S GROWING PAINS RENEWED FOR SECOND SERIES ON COMEDY CENTRAL

Rhod Gilbert's Growing Pains is returning for a second series, with an extended run of 12 episodes.



The panel show sees Rhod Gilbert judge guest comedians and celebrities on their embarrassing teenage memories. The first series, which aired earlier in 2021, averaged 200,000 viewers across its six episode run.


ViacomCBS UK's Sebastian Cardwell said: "I am delighted to be working with Rumpus again and bringing back these shows to Comedy Central. The first series [was] a big hit with our audience, and I can't wait for Rhod to uncover even more embarrassing celebrity teen stories, and for Jon to reveal some of the world's most outrageous and hilarious programmes on TV."


Managing director of Rumpus, Iain Wimbush, added: "I can't wait to re-visit the youth of some of our much-loved celebrity guests, and hear Rhod's inimitable take on their questionable choices. This is a pure tonic, full of nostalgia and feel good moments."
