All That Glitters: Britain's Next Jewellery Star will return to BBC Two for a second series, it's been announced.
Katherine Ryan will return to host the show which is filmed in a specially built workshop nestled in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, home to more jewellers than anywhere else in Europe and a place that’s been a jewellery-making hub for over 500 years.
The first series averaged over 2 million viewers in consolidated viewing figures.
Katherine Ryan said: "I am so delighted to be back again to host the beautiful show that is All That Glitters. The first series was a total joy to be a part of and taking part in the next series has absolutely nothing to do with the diamond rings, ruby tiaras or sapphire encrusted chokers I may or may not get to wear if my rider is agreed to."
Each show tasked the jewellers with two real-world challenges; The Best Seller, where they must design a piece that will appeal to a mass market, and The Bespoke, where they make a real client’s dreams come true.
Jack Bootle, Head of Commissioning, Science and Natural History, commented: "The audience response to All That Glitters has been amazing and I can't wait to see what our next batch of talented jewellers are going to create. It's so exciting to build on a series that celebrates British craft and creativity - and does so right in the heart of beautiful Birmingham, the European capital of jewellery-making."
Creative Director at Twenty Twenty James O’Reilly added: "The return of All That Glitters is a wonderful start to our life as a fully Bristol-based indie. The series really resonated with viewers at home and we’re delighted to have Katherine Ryan returning as our host as we discover Britain’s next jewellery star."
Applications for series 2 are open now to those aged over 18. Online applications currently close on 4 June 2021.
