British singer and West End actress Brenda Edwards has joined the cast of the upcoming BBC One comedy series The Wright Way as a series regular.

Created by Ben Elton, the synopsis for The Wright Way, courtesy of the UK's TVWise, reads:

... follows Council Officer Gerald B Meakin, a man dedicated to the minimization of risk, even where no actual risk exists. If only Gerald were able to control his own life with the same benevolent despotism with which he regulates other peoples’. Sadly he can’t. A recent divorcee and new single Dad, Gerald B Meakin’s personal life is just one long struggle against the petty irritations and inconvenience which bedevil all our lives. Those 21st century slings and arrows of outrageous fortune against which Gerald’s lengthy rule book is no defence at all.

The comedy series is being directed by Dewi Humphreys and stars David Haig and Beattie Edmondson.

No word on what role Edwards will play in the series.

She's best known as a former contestant on The X-Factor, with an acting career that includes lots of stage work on London's West End, including roles in Chicago, Carmen Jones and We Will Rock You

    It's always good to see new, diverse faces getting some screen time. BBC has a bad habit of recycling the same actors, over and over again.
