Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee has joked she hopes she doesn't have to keep having babies to keep getting TV shows commissioned.

The Derry writer gave birth to her second son, Sean, on the day filming began on new Channel 5 series The Deceived earlier this year.

Speaking to Sunday Life, Lisa revealed she had a similar experience at the beginning of Derry Girls and hopes the coincidences aren't an omen for her future career.
