The new series was released on Netflix on April Fools' Day, with viewers around the world able to see every cough and splutter from last season's League One campaign, including the Checkatrade Trophy final defeat to Portsmouth and play-off final loss to Charlton.

Ross, who was sacked in October, said: "Will I watch it? I’m sure I will. I think curiosity will probably get the best of me in that respect.

“There were a lot of good times within that season as well so there will be moments I can reminisce as well.

“I know a lot of people will watch it, just like the first season, because it is very well made and the production company are good at their jobs.

“I read a comment from someone the other day suggesting if we had won the Checkatrade final and won the play-off final then we wouldn’t have complained about cameras being there.

“But I was consistent from the first day in my preference that they NOT be there.

“But it was part of the club’s decision to do the second series.

“The people involved in the production of the programme were good people - respectful - but I think, in any line of work, if television cameras are omnipresent then it does lend a different dynamic to things.”
