4. Queenie

Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th June at 10pm and 10.35pm on Channel 4

BRAND NEW DRAMA


Based on the bestselling novel by Candice Carty-Williams, Channel 4's new 8-part drama Queenie stars Dionne Brown as Queenie Jenkins, a twenty-five-year-old Jamaican British woman living in South London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither.


After a messy break-up from her long-term boyfriend Tom, played by Jon Pointing, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places and begins to realise she has to face the past head-on before she can rebuild.


Samuel Adewunmi plays Frank, a man with his own van and grand plans in life. He’s from ends, is invested in his community and he’s known Queenie since her High School days. And Bellah makes her screen debut as Kyazike, Queenie’s longest-serving best friend from school.


Elsewhere, Sally Phillips plays Gina, the hard-bitten Editor at Queenie’s work The Daily Read, Tilly Keeper plays Queenie’s colleague Darcy, Elisha Applebaum plays Queenie’s best friend from university Cassandra and Mim Shaikh plays our resident wideboy Adi.


For Queenie’s family, Llewella Gideon will play Grandma Veronica, Michelle Greenidge plays Aunty Maggie and Cristale De’Abreu makes her TV debut as Queenie’s little cousin Diana.

5. Tell Me Everything

Thursday 6th June at 10.05pm on ITV2

RETURNING DRAMA


As Tell Me Everything returns, we pick up where the first series left off as we discover that Jonny and his family have moved to Hitchin. A new house, new college, and a fresh start. Continuing his journey of recovery, Jonny has started to make friends with other students at college, Naisha, Dylan, Ella and Bex.


Ella is impulsive, often putting herself in dangerous situations and in the first episode is devastated when an exposing video goes viral. Naisha is newly single, and although she claims to be happy about this, she’s often the third wheel to best-friend Dylan and his boyfriend Tommy.


Dylan has spent several years of his life in care and he is staying at best friend Naisha’s, despite hating the feeling of being the charity case that this gives him. And Bex, who is also new to Jonny’s college, is unsure of herself around this new gang.


Together, they face the highs and lows, trials and tribulations of teenage life at Hitchin college.


1/6 Continues weekly. All episodes available at launch
