The UK’s most beloved crime scene cleaner returns for a third series, featuring a fresh lineup of guest stars and even more colossal crime scenes to tackle.

Joining Greg Davies as Paul ‘Wicky’ Wickstead is Steve Pemberton (Inside No 9), Sharon Rooney (Barbie), Ben Willbond (Ghosts), and Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones).

Written by and starring Greg Davies, The Cleaner follows Paul ‘Wicky’ Wickstead, a state-certified cleaning technician with a very special field of work - he is a crime-scene cleaner responsible for the removal of any signs of death.

Armed with chemicals, scrubbing brushes and cleaning rags, Wicky removes the gruesome mess at the scene of the crime. When carrying out his duties, he stumbles across the strangest of people, from the victims’ relatives, employers, neighbours and acquaintances to occasionally even the murderers themselves. And because he’s a sociable type, he sometimes gossips more than he cleans…

The Cleaner Series 3 cast will also include: Chaneil Kular (Sex Education), Derek Griffiths (Unforgotten), Gemma Whelan (Killing Eve), Harry Peacock (Toast of London), Paula Wilcox (Coronation Street), Philippa Dunne (Motherland), Rebekah Staton (Doctor Who), Rosie Cavaliero (The Power of Parker), Sheila Reid (Benidorm), Sophia Dall’Aglio (So Awkward), Vicki Pepperdine (Getting On), Viraj Juneja (Horrible Histories), and Zita Sattar returning in her role as PS Ruth Edwards.

Greg Davies says: “I am so delighted to be back wading around in blood. We have made sure that Wicky has some bizarre characters to deal with this series. Looking forward to sweating in a scene of crime suit and wearing the earring that my nieces find so cringe.”

Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy for the BBC, says: "We couldn't be happier to introduce our fantastic cast for the upcoming season of The Cleaner. Greg and SHUK have done a terrific job finding some top comedy talent for Wicky to bounce off, figuratively speaking."

Vivien Muller-Rommel, SHUK (Studio Hamburg UK), says: “We’re immensely proud to be back, especially with the best of British comedy joining us on screen. Season 3 is hugely ambitious. In fact, we have so many cast members this time around that you really have to look for the tall, big guy to make sure he’s still in it.”

The Cleaner (6x30') is produced by SHUK (Studio Hamburg UK) for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
