GREG Davies will be returning to screens next year for two brand-new comedies that sees him take the role of a less-than-trustworthy psychotherapist and a forensic cleaner.

The BAFTA Award-winning comedian and Wem native has written and will appear in 'Safe Space' on Sky in 2022.

The new show sees Greg play Michael Leer, a psychotherapist in a small market town in England.

A likeable eccentric and one of life's listeners, on the surface Michael is a safe pair of hands.

But unbeknown to them, Michael's clients are sharing their innermost secrets and fears with a fantasist who will no longer sit in the shadows.

The advice Michael dispenses is that which suits his own desperate need to control them.

For Michael's clients, their 'Safe Space' is no longer safe at all.

Speaking about the premise of the show last year, Greg said: "We thought it'd be an interesting starting point to have a psychotherapist who isn't as together as his patients might want him to be.

"We have had some very interesting chats with psychotherapists. When they're anonymous they're very candid about their job and about some of the people that they treat.

"It's a really fascinating world, I think."

Greg is also set to star in new BBC One comedy series 'The Cleaner', playing Paul 'Wicky' Wickstead, a state-certified cleaning technician working as a crime scene cleaner.

Greg said: "As a young man I told a careers adviser that I wanted to mop blood up for a living or be a comedian.

"He told me with a giggle that neither were real jobs and I should consider learning a trade. Well, he's not laughing now is he – sadly, he's dead.

"I'm thrilled to be adapting this wonderful show with Studio Hamburg UK for BBC One and can't wait to get cleaning."

Broadcast details are yet to be released.
