Desmond MacCarthy, owner of Wiveton Hall and a pair of outrageous eyebrows, is back for season two of the docusoap which provides insight into his quirky life.

Season one introduced viewers to his family, including his 99-year-old mother Chloe and two children, before exposing his struggling business ventures.

The premise was that nothing quite went to plan and this looks set to continue throughout the six new episodes.

According to the Radio Times, Desmond will attempt 'to keep his 17th-century manor house afloat and stay on the right side of bankruptcy.
