There’s only one thing worse than failure and that’s success — or that’s what I tell myself after screwing up once again.
In 2019’s smash hit Fisherman’s Friends the Cornish sea shanty singers ended up hitting the big time — but in the soon-to-be-released sequel they are soon finding their new situation trickier than they expected.
Will things get roughy for them? Could there be sprat falls? Might friendships flounder? Eel find out on 19 August, when Fisherman’s Friends: One And All sails into cinemas across the UK and Ireland. [After the first film and trailers, the sequel announcements and now this, I am oFISHially out of puns.]

The sequel charts the next instalment of the Fisherman’s Friends amazing and uplifting true story.
