BBC One’s hit drama Hotel Babylon returns for a second series next month for an eight week run which see’s some major changes at the swish hotel.
�Tamzin Outhwaite and Max Beesley are joined by a host of familiar faces from the first series including Dexter Fletcher (Head Concierge Tony) and newcomer Paul Telfer who plays Tony’s new trainee Luke.
With his good looks, confidence and naughty streak, Luke promises to turn heads both back and front of house. But his arrogance comes at a price.
�"e;Luke is the new trainee concierge at Hotel Babylon. After the events at the end of the first series Rebecca felt that Tony needed some back up on reception so I play his protge the next generation of high-level concierge,"e; smiles Paul.
�”They don’t know each other and Tony is taking a chance on Luke,"e; he adds.”
There is also a suggestion that Luke doesn’t have the cleanest of pasts which might have helped him land the job since he slots straight in."e;
Following her marriage to actor Tom Ellis last summer the second series of Hotel Babylon will be Tamzin Outhwaite’s last acting job for a while.
"e;I am going to do nothing for a while – just relax and enjoy myself, my new husband and my new house and have a bit of a laugh for a while"e; explains the much in demand actress.
Outhwaite says she enjoyed her time on the series as the glamorous Rebecca Mitchell and doesn’t rule out a possible return to the series:� "e;I’ve loved playing her and it would be great if she came back as a little cameo at some point … maybe as a guest but as General Manager this is it for Rebecca."e;
