 XXXXX

Ahead of the second series of Gary: Tank Commander on BBC One Scotland, exclusive clips are now available online. Along with three hilarious sketches from the new series there is also behind-the-scenes footage of the cast and an interview with star and writer of the programme Greg McHugh.

For a sneak peek of the second series, go to bbc.co.uk/scotland where Greg also gives a unique insight into filming the unlikely comedy hero and his comrades.

Gary: Tank Commander returns to BBC One Scotland this New Year with six brand new episodes starting Monday 3 January at 10.25pm.

This follows on from the success of the Scottish Bafta Award-winning comedy in 2008 and the first BBC Scotland series in 2009 – and now the boys are back with more army antics.

The second series will see Gary return to Edinburgh to carry out duties closer to home, which ultimately will end up in high jinks, fun and regular trouble with Sergeant Thomson.

Greg McHugh, who plays Gary, says: "I am over the actual moon that series two will be hitting our screens on Monday 3 January on BBC One Scotland.

"It's extremely exciting that everyone can get a sneaky preview online now where they'll see the boys perform some amazing dance moves – and also see me stuffing my face with a chocolate cake. Method acting, my friends, method.

"I would urge one and many to tune in to see how Gary and the boys cope with some full-on challenges like, getting home from the Afghan, losing their tank, competing to be the new 'Howard fae the Bank' and much more."

Executive producer Ewan Angus says: "We are delighted that Gary is back for a second series and it's great that fans can see the teasers for the series online. We hope the clips will whet everyone's appetite for the fun that will follow in January."
