Gabrielle Union insists Being Mary Jane's second series will be ''very juicy and very sexy''.

The 42-year-old actress portrays the titular TV news anchor in the BET drama series and has promised fans they can expect to see a triple threat of love interests for her alter-ego in the upcoming new season, which will lead to some steamy scenes.

She said: ''There are three love interests this season. It's very juicy and very sexy; one a little younger, one a little older and one just her size, like Goldilocks!''

As well as the character's busy love life, the raven-haired stunner also revealed there will be plenty of work-based drama in the second series and some havoc in Mary Jane's family life.

She added: ''This season you find Mary Jane with a lot of work drama, a lot of change over at [fictional network] Talk Back, a lot of new opportunities come her way that she may or may not be ready to handle.

''You see her family life sort of having a bit of upheaval. We've got Niecy her niece; second child, second baby father, no education, no job. Of course that becomes Mary Jane's headache.''

'Being Mary Jane' Series 2 starts tonight at 10pm on BET - Sky 187 / Virgin 184 / FREESAT 140 - in the UK.
