Co-written by and starring Greg Davies, comedy series The Cleaner follows Paul ‘Wicky’ Wickstead on more of his eventful cleaning jobs. Series 1 of the comedy is available now on BBC iPlayer.
Armed again with his chemicals, scrubbing brushes and cleaning rags, Wicky removes more gruesome remains at the scenes of new crimes, including in a theatre, an electrical goods store, and a stately home. It is here he meets some more unusual characters and gets sucked into their worlds as he can’t help but gossip as he cleans, all the while trying to get down to the pub.
Wicky faces the ultimate test of self-control: a job in a pub, after he’s promised his new girlfriend he’ll stay off the booze. But resisting a pint is the least of his challenges once he meets hard-bitten landlady Lisa and muscle-bound barman Cuddle.
Wicky is there to clean up the devastation left by a lethal brawl, but as a web of romantic and criminal intrigue slowly unravels around him, Wicky realises there’s more to this job than just cleaning up blood (and the occasional severed human ear).
