BBC The Outlaws star Stephen Merchant teases 'satisfying' third and final season

Make the most of the third series of The Outlaws because it will be the last, according to writer Stephen Merchant. But an awful lot is going to happen….

Key plot points are Rani and Ben (Rhianne Barreto and Gamba Cole) being caught in a love triangle with his new roller-blading girlfriend while Lady Gaby (Eleanor Tomlinson), now sober and drug-free, decides that she wants to have a baby. Writer and star Stephen Merchant, who plays hapless lawyer Greg, might just have something to do with the baby situation - because Eleanor says her favourite scene of the series is when Greg is charged with providing a sperm sample into a cup. “It’s the most I’ve ever corpsed,” she laughs.

Merchant says the original plan was to do a new version of The Outlaws “in another town with a new cast” but he was tempted back for a third run in his hometown of Bristol, with the same crew, because they were “so good”. “Rani has gone from girl next door to Scarface,” he says. “Don’t quit a hit.”

Jess Gunning as Martha in the Netflix show Baby Reindeer

Look out for Baby Reindeer star Jess Gunning who is even more hilarious this time around as Community Payback Officer Diane. Fans will be desperate for Ben and Rani to reconnect when the BBC1 series starts - with a dead body - on May 31.

Rani was last seen abandoning him as he left for Weston-Super-Mare - the action starts six months after that moment and there’s been no contact between them. But the series finale will “bring a tear to the eye” apparently… Rhianne admits that she doesn’t like seeing Gamba acting with his ‘other woman’. “Even just watching their scenes - I hate it,” she laughed. “The last scene of the show is really satisfying,” Bring it on.
