Co-written by and starring Greg Davies, comedy series The Cleaner follows Paul ‘Wicky’ Wickstead on more of his eventful cleaning jobs.

Armed again with his chemicals, scrubbing brushes and cleaning rags, Wicky removes more gruesome remains at the scenes of new crimes, including in a theatre, an electrical goods store, and a stately home.

It is here he meets some more unusual characters and gets sucked into their worlds as he can’t help but gossip as he cleans, all the while trying to get down to the pub...

Asim Chaudhry Q&A

Can you tell us a bit about your character and what attracted you to the role?

My character's name is Kai. He's a conspiracy theorist with a good heart. I've always wanted to play someone with greaser skin than I have in real life.

What was it like working alongside Greg?

Absolute legend. I used to call him Papa G on taskmaster and sit on his lap and I very much did the same thing on this set.

Do you have a favourite moment from filming your episode?

Greg and I have an amazing chase scene and by amazing I mean slow and pathetic.

How do you think you would fare as a crime-scene cleaner?

Really bad. I'm always touching everything and sniffing stuff. The scene would be contaminated within seconds.


The Cleaner season 2 starts Friday 24th March 2023 at 9:30pm on BBC One.
