Simon Pegg as Richard Wilkins, the show's creator and executive producer, he's extremely laid back and leaves Jack to a lot of work. He, however, takes most of the credit for the show.

Amy Hoggart as DeeDee Branch, the demanding host of The Eye, a washed up singer who's one-hit wonder earned her British celebrity status.
