ITV has confirmed more details about The Job Lot's second season – and it includes the casting of Boyzone star Keith Duffy.

The sitcom will begin its second run on ITV2 in the autumn before screening later on the main channel, with Russell Tovey and Sarah Hadland returning as Karl and Trish.

Casualty's Laura Aikman has joined the cast as new Deputy Manager Natalie, while Sophie McShera, Tony Maudsley, Jo Enright, Martin Marquez, Angela Curran and Adeel Akhtar all return.

Among the second season's guest stars are Meera Syal as a CEO of a Midlands hot tub company and Keith Duffy as a telephone engineer with a 'roving eye'.

"It's great to welcome back the brilliantly beleaguered workers and job seekers of the Brownall Job Centre - and this time round with some excellent guest stars, who'll be joining our regular ensemble comedy cast," said Elaine Bedell, ITV's director of comedy & entertainment.

Since 2006, Keith Duffy has built up an acting career, playing roles in shows such as Fair City, Coronation Street and Love/Hate, as well as appearing on stage in the likes of John B Keane's Big Maggie.
