LOST IN SOUTHEND; TV Land SPECIAL at Nicola and Polly's Beach Party We Reveal Secrets of Series Two


Byline: NICOLA METHVEN and POLLY HUDSON

IT'S not often we TV Land gals spend our day off at the seaside, surrounded by the debris of a plane crash, nursing a newborn baby and tangling with a crazed polar bear.

But we felt that the return of the multi award-winning Lost - which begins its second series on Channel 4 next Tuesday - ought to be marked in a fitting way.

Sadly, our budget didn't stretch to two tickets to Hawaii, so we had to make do with Southend for our tribute. We drove ourselves there - and, yes, we did get Lost on the way...

Still, our beach party gave us a chance to reflect on the enigmas of the first series and wonder what the second might have in store.

What is down the mysterious hatch? What do the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 mean? Did the castaways on the raft survive? Will Kate go for nice Jack or rugged Sawyer? What was a polar bear doing in the tropics? (Southend maybe - it's chilly enough.) And just how did new mum Claire lose her baby weight overnight?

From what we know of the second series, it's even more thrilling than the first. So here are 10 tantalising titbits to whet your appetite - without giving too much away. Down the hatch...

1 WE discover that the people we watched last time round were not the only survivors of the plane crash. There is another group on the island called The Tailies, because they were in the tail section. Although there were quite a few of them to start with, there are now only four.

So we get some new characters. Yay! There's Ana-Lucia (the woman Jack had a drink with in the airport bar before boarding the doomed flight), Libby, Mr Eko and Bernard.

2 SOME hints of what or who is in the hatch are given right at the start of episode one, but many questions remain unanswered.

We can reveal that Jack's plan to get everyone to hide from The Others in the hatch goes pear-shaped after they discover that it leads to a deep shaft (ie something they can't hide in). But, of course, Locke can't keep away. In the end, he, Kate and Jack venture inside.

3 PREPARE for a shock early on when one of the regular characters dies. Not only that, but they'll be murdered! Still, that's what happens when you crashland on a remote tropical island and then discover that you are not the only bunch of survivors. Each side thinks the others are, um, The Others, and who can blame them? To borrow a phrase from 24 - "trust no one".

4 EVEN in the middle of a disaster, love will find a way. As the love triangle between Kate, Jack and Sawyer continues (yes, Sawyer survives - more of which later), another glorious union springs up. …
