Two Pints and White Van Man star Will Mellor has said that he is "pleased" with his comedy In With The Flynns, with debuted on BBC One last night a respectable 4 million. The actor said the new BBC sitcom has an "edge" as opposed to playing it safe.

He told the Manchester Evening News yesterday : "I suppose a lot of prime time BBC One shows can be a bit safe. I like doing things with edge and I think this has that, [but] it's different because it's got warmth and is natural.

It's different and it's the kind of show I'd watch myself, and I'm pleased with it because [it] has a bit of edge and is laugh-out-loud funny."

Will continued: "What's good is there are no comedy actors. It's all played very naturally, which is why I think the viewers will be able to relate."

An average of 4.1 million viewers - a 19% share - watched the first episode between 8:30PM and 9PM last night.
