The second of the three films, Twitchers, will air on Tuesday, 28 December 7:15PM on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

A teaser of the episode shares: “When a flock of choughs turns up at Scatterbrook Farm, Worzel is keen to seize the chance to scare such a rarely seen bird. But his plans are soon scuppered when a group of avid birdwatchers moves in.”

The third episode, Calliope Jane, will follow the next day on Wednesday, 29 December at 7:15PM.

Shares a teaser: “When a travelling fair comes to Scatterbrook, Worzel tells John and Susan the legend of a fair with an enchanted organ that sends humans to sleep so scarecrows can enjoy the rides without being seen.”

The first episode of the new series, Guy Forks, debuted in November.

Returning to the cast alongside Mackenzie as Worzel Gummidge are Steve Pemberton as Mr Braithwaite, Rosie Cavaliero as Mrs Braithwaite, Vicki Pepperdine as Aunt Sally, India Brown as Susan and Thierry Wickens as John.
