Rose Matafeo has taken to social media today (June 10) to confirm a second season of Starstruck and to joke about the fate of Jessie.
The first season was made up of six-parts and arrived on BBC iPlayer back in April. The plot follows a young woman in London who wakes up after a one night stand to discover she has slept with a movie star.
Matafeo, creator and writer of Starstruck, shared a picture on Twitter which showed an opened Word document with ‘Series Two Pitches’ as the heading. Underneath were a number of wild “plot pitches”, one of which said “Jessie dies.”
Other suggestions were: “Jessie gets hot and ripped. Tom is a flat earther…Tom uploads her to an external hard drive.”

Matafeo announced the news earlier today (June 10) saying: “Thrilled that Starstruck will be returning to the BBC Three for a second series, because I left my water bottle on set last year and I would love to get it back.”
