Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back will return for second series on Channel 4

Joe Lycett will continue to have your back after getting a second series of his Channel 4 show.

Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back has been handed a second season after a successful six-part run earlier this year.

Once again, it will follow comedian Joe Lycett as he turns his well-honed skills of complaining to dish out a hilarious dose of consumer justice on behalf of the people of the UK.

The first series saw Joe battling a raft of consumer complaints from the likes of Britannia Hotels and easyJet.

Joe not only managed to change the policies of several multinational giants including Uber Eats, SpareRoom and RBS but also got thousands of pounds of people’s money back and celebrated everyday customer service heroes.

With more scams, dodgy practises and unacceptable consumer standards at large, national business will once again be exposed, and Joe will also look to uncover those solo rogues exploiting innocent victims such as cowboy builders and crooked car salesmen.

The second series will run for eight hour-long episodes.

Joe Lycett said: “Got Your Back was my dream job because it let me do two of my favourite things – be an idiot and shove two fingers up to greedy corporations. I’m over the moon we’re back for longer episodes and a longer series and if I’m not at least banned from a high street bank by the end of it I will see that as a failure.”

Jonny Rothery, Commissioning Editor for Features & Formats at Channel 4 added: “We are delighted that the brilliantly talented Joe is back on Channel 4 for another series of Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back.

“Series two promises more stunts, more confrontation, more secret filming and a lot more Mark Silcox. Joe’s unique gift of making complaining funny, whilst still getting results, is something that resonates with us all. We could all do with being a bit more Joe.”
