As well as Purefoy, who played Remi Milburn in the aforementioned Netflix series, other returning Fisherman's Friends cast members include: Maggie Steed, Dave Johns, Sam Swainsbury, Jade Anouka and David Hayman.

But there's some fresh faces on Port Isaac too – in the shape of Richard Harrington, Ramon Tikaram, Joshua Maguire and Irish singer-songwriter Imelda May, who makes her screen debut here.

Fisherman's Friends 2 picks up where we left off with the 'buoy band', as they must now navigate the harsh waters of fame, the difficult second album and performing on the iconic Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival.
