The ‘man with the brows’ Desmond MaCarthy returned to our screens on Monday night for a second series of BBC2 documentary Normal for Norfolk.

The fly-on-the-wall series follows MacCarthy’s money making schemes to keep his 17th century country house Wiveton Hall afloat.

Jane Russell tweeted: “A 2nd season of Normal for Norfolk, lived there mid 90s, this bit of madness is quite normal.”

His latest ideas include garden tours, though he has to set mole traps first, and turning the rat-infested east wing of the house into a yoga retreat.

Desmond’s 101-year-old mother Chloe returns to discuss his latest plans for the Jacobean mansion in the cafe as a chicken squawks under the table.

He also meets with his ex-wife and local tailor Tina for a new tweed suit.

The star of the show was once again the two birds nests resting on top of his eyes, but fans are suspect of a new grooming routine following his new-found fame.

Nicola Pattison tweeted: “Wonderful to have Desmond back on our screens - those eyebrows look more styled this series.”

Normal for Norfolk continues on BBC2 at 10pm on Monday.
