Greg Davies fans and aficionados of BBC series The Cleaner, will be delighted to know that production has begun on series 3 of the popular comedy show and cameras are rolling this week in County Antrim.


Greg Davies is back as the UK’s favourite crime scene cleaner, Paul ‘Wicky’ Wickstead, to take on a whole host of eventful cleaning jobs in a third series of The Cleaner.



Armed once more with his trusty box of cleaning tools, Wicky removes more gruesome remains at the scenes of six new crimes where he’ll encounter more unusual characters.

Eagle-eyed Ballycastle locals noticed production vehicles rolling in to the seaside town earlier this week. Scenes for the third series have so far been filming at the Bath Lodge house and a red boat in the harbour.


It is understood further scenes will be filmed on Rathlin Island.


The third series will see Wicky clean-up a lighthouse in Northern Ireland, encounter a highly pregnant woman and reconnect with a long lost friend. Ruth Edwards (Zita Sattar) is also back for another series - but Wicky’s new domestic arrangement is not sitting quite well with him.

Greg Davies says:


“I’m as pleased as can be to have Wicky mop up more gore during his next existential crisis. The Cleaner is such a pleasure to make and I can’t wait to welcome a new gang of guest characters to his bloody work place.”



Vivien Muller-Rommel, executive producer, added:


“We are absolutely delighted to be back for a third instalment of Wicky mopping up after some larger-than-life characters. Thank you BBC and UK audiences for trusting us with another round of spills, thrills, and the occasional rogue body part.”


The second series of The Cleaner was in the top ten most viewed scripted comedies in the UK, with a 2.9m average audience.
