Mandy will be back soon for a third series on the BBC, with Diane Morgan once again returning to play the titular character.

The series, which was created and written by Morgan as well, follows the hapless and job-shy Mandy getting into all sorts of daft situations.

Quite a few episodes have her trying to hold down a job in the gig economy to not much success.

Speaking to the Radio Times on her favourite episodes in this series Morgan said: "There's three I like equally – the first episode, Destination: Dundee, is great because it feels quite filmic and it was lovely to work with Paul Ready from Motherland again, and he's really great in it.

"Episode 5, Nandy, because I liked playing Mandy's nan, which was fun, and there's some puppets in it, so that was a bit different.

"And the final episode, because it's got a lot of visual moments in it that I always enjoy. It's very dramatic, and it's got a musical finale, and who doesn't like that. One of my favourite bits in it is where I have a party hat on – that's probably my favourite bit of the whole series, but it won't be anyone else's."
