Sky One’s TV series The Heist has kicked off with series 2 from February 6th, 2020.
The reality show features nine ordinary people who team up to steal the epic sum of £1,000,000.
And the concept of the entertaining show is not too hard either – if they manage to keep the money hidden for 20 days, then they can keep it!
The cast of the second series includes real-life Met Police detectives, so let’s get to know the investigators on The Heist more.
