BBC TV series Hebburn starring Chris Ramsey returns to BBCiPlayer

The show aired on BBC Two in 2012 and 2013.

Comedy TV series Hebburn which starred Chris Ramsey in the lead role as Jack Pearson, originally aired on BBC Two back in 2012 and 2013.

The plot of the show, which was written by local comedian Jason Cook, focused on Jack bringing his new wife Sarah (played by actress Kimberly Nixon) to his hometown of Hebburn in Tyne and Wear.

Vic Reeves, Gina McKee, Lisa McGrillis and Pat Dunn starred in the roles of Jack’s incredibly Geordie and down-to-earth family, providing viewers with a hilarious over-exaggerated version of Hebburn residents.

The series which consisted of 13 episodes (6 per series) and one Christmas special, ran for two seasons over ten years before being axed in March 2014.

The show was previously available to watch online, however the series was removed from streaming services.

However, it has now returned to BBCiPlayer, where viewers can rewatch (or in some cases, check out the show for the first time) the two series and Christmas special, ten years after it originally aired for the final time.

Chris Ramsey has since gone on to have an incredibly successful career as not only a comedian but as a podcaster with his wife Rosie Ramsey. The married couple have one of the most successful podcasts in the UK, named Sh**ged, Married, Annoyed. In the award-winning podcast Ramsey and his wife discuss their life annoyances, humorous stories and outrageous confessions from the public.

Writer Jason Cook who also starred in the show, now hosts a comedy club which takes place at The Customs House every month.
