Shane Allen, Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning said: "The audience popularity across BBC Two and iPlayer has led to huge affection for a show that now rubs shoulders with The Royle Family and Gavin And Stacey as a firm and long lasting sitcom favourite.

"The writing is so precise, the characters burst with comic vitality and the performances are a masterclass in comedy delivery. Poor Eric, what fresh hell is he in for?"

Steven Canny, Executive producer with BBC Studios Comedy, added: “We’ve been cruelly torturing poor Beth and Eric for the last 7 years and couldn’t be more delighted about having another go.

"Two Doors Down is a brilliant show to make, a genuine delight from start to finish, and I can’t wait for the audience to see what we have lined up for series five. Some overbearing neighbours may be involved.”
