Series 2 introduced two major cast changes: Tamla Kari (Rachel) was replaced by Esther Smith, and Cuckoo was written out because of Andy Samberg's other work commitments and replaced by his long lost son Dale (TaylorLautner). It also introduced a new regular character in the form of Rachel's new boyfriend Ben (Matt Lacey); a safe and boring solicitor who works with Ken and Rachel.
