THE KEMPS: ALL GOLD CONFIRMED FOR BBC TWO, CASTING ANNOUNCED
Spandau Ballet’s Gary and Martin Kemp are back once again with award-winning documentary filmmaker Rhys Thomas OBE for The Kemps: All Gold (1x60), the highly-anticipated follow-up to the hit 2020 mockumentary The Kemps: All True made by BBC Studios Comedy productions.
A star-studded cast featuring a mix of seasoned talent and fresh faces join the Kemp brothers as Rhys follows the pair over a whole year as they make a biopic, get divorced and form a super group; naturally not everything goes to plan.
Michael Kitchen (Foyle’s War) returns as the Kemps’ long-suffering manager and Perry Benson (Operation Good Guys, Benidorm) is back as their brother Ross Kemp - not that one.
The Kemps: All Gold also features Adil Ray (Citizen Khan), Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who), Danny John Jules (Red Dwarf), David Arnold (James Bond Composer), Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, I Hate Suzie), Ed Kear (Here We Go), Ellie May Sheridan (Dodger), Lenny Rush (Am I Being Unreasonable?, Dodger).
Plus Lucy Montgomery (Disenchantment, Tracey Ullman’s Show), Matt Allwright (Watchdog, Rogue Traders), Paul Reynolds (Press Gang, Trevor’s World of Sport), Shirlie Kemp (Pepsi & Shirlie), Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders, Murder is Easy) and Francis Rossi (Status Quo).
Martin Kemp says “If you thought The Kemps: All True made you laugh… that was nothing, wait till you see this one. It’s brilliant , bonkers, and so funny. It’s definitely a don’t miss over Christmas.”
Gary Kemp says “It's fantastic to reunite with Rhys and be joined by our incredible cast for The Kemps: All Gold. We're taking our adventures to a whole new level of dysfunction this time, and we can't wait to share the laughter and mayhem with our fans."
Rhys Thomas says: “We had so much fun making The Kemps we couldn’t wait to come back for more and what a brilliant cast! What sports to send themselves up in such style!”
Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy at the BBC says: “A huge thanks to Gary and Martin Kemp for managing to keep a straight face throughout the filming of this show. They’ve delivered us a hilarious little Christmas treat, with help from Rhys Thomas’ unique comedy brain.”
