ABSOLUTELY Ascot is back for a second series and they’ve added new cast members sure to kick up a storm in the posh town – including Claudia Smith’s ex boyfriend.
The show follows the lives of Travellers and Gorgers (non-travellers) and their luxurious lifestyles in the famous town of Ascot.
The ITVBe constructed reality TV show – made by the same people behind Towie and The Real Housewives of Cheshire – is returning on September 22 for eight more episodes, taking place in both Ascot and Marbella.
This new series will shake everything up with the new editions, including Claudia’s ex boyfriend Gary Ball.
The pair were each other’s first loves and Gary even had plans to propose to her – but it all fell apart, leaving bad blood between him and her whole family.
A show source told The Sun Online: “Gary is a great addition to the cast. He’s not only a great character himself, but his return to Ascot adds a dimension to the Smith family we haven’t seen before.
“Him and ex-girlfriend Claudia are an electric watch together and we’re really excited to have them both on screen.”
He’ll be joined by his best friend, Sam Bernard, a “fiercely loyal” pal with a “cheeky exterior”, who Claudia blames for being a bad influence.
There are also two feisty singletons entering the fray, including the glamorous Charlotte Lee.
She is said to get caught in a love triangle with fellow newbie Rudi Hewitt and series regular Mia Sulley.
While Charlotte works in her family chip shop, she’s fabulous and funny.
According to the source, “she wears her heart on her sleeve and suffers no fools.”
On the other hand, Rudi is a classic handsome lady’s man – something that’ll get him into a lot of trouble.
The source said: “Rudi is sexy, charming and a bit of a rogue. Following his adventures navigating the single women of Ascot has been sweet and hilarious in equal measure.
“They certainly don’t make it easy for him! A really great addition to the cast.”
Alongside the new arrivals, the series will delve deeper into the lives of Henry Simmons, Mia Sully, Chloe Louise Bowler, and Samson and Claudia Smith.
Absolutely Ascot series 2 starts on Sunday 22 September at 10pm on ITVBe.
