Mustafa said: "Andy’s someone that’s had his heyday in like 2006 and now he’s just getting older. At the start of the series he’s trying to work out what he actually wants, because he’s just in exactly the same position as he was.

“He’s a nice guy and he wants to be loved, but he just goes about things the wrong way, especially when it comes to dating!"

"I’m half Kurdish, so we decided to make Andy half Kurdish. There are some funny moments when he brings dates back to meet his parents and we even got to speak a little bit of Kurdish, which was actually important to me.

“I used to be a bit embarrassed about my heritage, as I grew up in a very white working class area, but now I’m obsessed Kurdish food."

Writer of Peacock, Steve Stamp, also stars in the show as Jonathan.

Stamp co-created and starred in People Just Do Nothing with Mustafa.

The comedy also stars Lucien Laviscount (Netflix’s Emily in Paris) as Jay, Thomas Gray (Comedy Central’s Absolutely Fine) as Spooner, Mandeep Dhillon (Netflix’s After Life) as Georgia, Susan Wokoma (Channel 4’s Year of the Rabbit) as Liz, and Callie Cooke (Netflix’s The Stranger) as Carly.

Sophia Di Martino, who plays Sylvie in the Marve’s Loki, also features in the comedy series.

What is Peacock about?

Personal trainer Andy Peacock is desperate to prove himself as he struts around in a world of selfies, gym memberships and showing off.

He works at Sportif Leisure and is living a perfectly vain life, on the outside.

But when Peacock loses out on a promotion to a younger and better-looking personal; trainer, he realises he’s a man out of time.

He must prove there’s more to him than his good looks and his well-curated dating profile - whilst trying to hide that he is in the midst of his own identity crisis.
