Bonneville's Twenty Twelve returns

Hugh Bonneville's comedy Twenty Twelve has been recommissioned for a second series.

The Downton Abbey actor, who plays the head of the Olympics deliverance committee in the BBC Four comedy, tweeted about the news.

He said: "Twenty Twelve turbine gets second wind."

He then made a reference to the fact his character can never enter his own office because of enhanced security measures, writing: "Change Pin code on door if anyone knows what it is."

Twenty Twelve also stars Jessica Hynes, Olivia Colman and Amelia Bullmore, and is written and directed by John Morton, of People Like Us fame.

Richard Klein, controller at BBC Four said: "Twenty Twelve is deliciously topical, wickedly funny and sometimes uncannily close to real life. It has quickly captured the imagination and shows that, above all, the British don't take themselves too seriously!"
