If you've ever fired up Instagram and been left perplexed by the glossy, otherworldly creatures pouting back at you from meticulously stylized vignettes marked #ad and #gifted, The Agency: Unfiltered will fill in at least some of the blanks.

The Agency: Unfiltered season 2 airs on BBC Scotland from Monday, January 8. Brits abroad can watch The Agency: Unfiltered season 2 from anywhere with a VPN.

It isn't all glamor on the shop floor either (though the twin jollies to Mykonos and Ibiza, for those that made the cut at least, are textbook), as staffing issues, brand deal negotiations and – horror of horrors – an outfit clash threatens at various moments to stem the agency's expansion.
