When we last saw them, Anne and Ann Walker were finally tying the knot in an understandably low-key ceremony, and from what we can tell, any chance of an extended honeymoon period soon went out of the window and into the coal pits.

With friends and family like the Walkers and Priestleys, who needs enemies? Well, Anne does, clearly. 

But in addition to the social, political and financial confrontations that are her lifeblood, Anne now has to face a storm of her own making, as an all-too-amorous blast from the past returns to test her fidelity and her thirst for the fast life. 

For ever more clutching of pearls and withering putdowns, read on as we detail how to watch Gentleman Jack season 2 online where you are.
