Katy Wix and Lolly Adefope join the cast of new BBC One comedy

Katy Wix and Lolly Adefope have joined the cast of upcoming new BBC One comedy Ghosts. The six-part sitcom has been created by the lead cast of writer-performers behind the award-winning Horrible Histories and Yonderland, and feature film Bill.

Ghosts will combine comedy with horror, set in the crumbling country pile of Button Hall, which is home to numerous restless spirits who have died there over the centuries.

Naturally, each ghost is very much of their own (alive) time, meaning they are doomed to squabble with each other for eternity over various mundane complaints. However, these ghosts are disturbed when a young urban couple, Alison and Mike (Charlotte Ritchie and Kiell Smith-Bynoe) inherit Button Hall and decide to renovate it to become a family hotel. The ghosts have other plans for the future of Button Hall and attempt to rid themselves of these invaders, when Mike and Alison discover the true scale of the project they’ve taken on, fate conspires to trap both sides in an impossible house share, where every day is, literally, a matter of life and death.
