Jon Aird | 10:26 UK time, Wednesday, 20 April 2011

Here for the first time are the beautiful new character stills from Psychoville series two. Some familiar faces, and some new ones. We can't wait to meet them all when the series starts on 5th May.

Mr Jelly

Reece Shearsmith as Mr Jelly

An embittered hook-handed clown and children's entertainer. Mr Jelly is tormented by the success of his rival Mr Jolly, who, to add insult to injury, was the cause of Mr Jelly’s hook hand. Jelly was amongst those trapped by Mr Jolly in Ravenhill at the end of the first series. Did he manage to make it out alive?

David Sowerbutts

Steve Pemberton as David Sowerbutts

A serial-killer-obsessed man-child. David became embroiled in a series of murders with his mum Maureen during the first series. A former patient of Ravenhill, because of his apparent role in the death of his father, David is very (some would say too) close to his mother.

Maureen Sowerbutts

Reece Shearsmith as Maureen Sowerbutts

Maureen is David's mum and while she is not as interested in serial killers as her son (she prefers jigsaws), she indulges his passion. After embarking on a killing spree with David to cover up his first 'bad murder', at the end of the first series Maureen discovered the truth behind their actions and decided it was time to end it all.

Joy Aston

Dawn French as Joy Aston

A desperately misguided midwife with a very odd child. Joy’s dream of bringing little Freddie Fruitcake to life seemed to have become reality at the end of the first series, but did she and little Freddie manage to get out of Ravenhill alive?
