While UKTV has shown plenty of original comedy shows on Dave, there are surprisingly less on Gold.

One of the few is The Rebel, which is back for a second series on Gold. Based on a comic strip in The Oldie magazine, Simon Callow plays the title role, a Brighton pensioner named Henry Palmer who in his youth was a mod and is still as rebellious as he was back then.

The opening episode of the new series sees Henry worrying about his finances, wondering if he might be forced to sell his house and move into a retirement home.

The Rebel is on Gold at 22.00.
