Great news for Grantch­ester fans. Rob­son Green, who plays de­tec­tive Ge­ordie Keat­ing, says, ‘I met ITV’s Di­rec­tor of Tele­vi­sion Kevin Lygo re­cently and he’s very pos­i­tive about the show’s fu­ture.’ The show was thought to be in doubt be­cause James Nor­ton, who plays vicar Sid­ney Cham­bers, is busy on other projects.

Dame Eileen Atkins ended up dusted with cre­ma­tion ashes while film­ing Doc Martin – but luck­ily they were fake. Dame Eileen, whose char­ac­ter Ruth scat­ters ashes in the new se­ries, says, ‘The di­rec­tor was show­ing me how to do it, and cov­ered me from head to toe in them.’

The cre­ator of com­edy show Taskmas­ter – which starred Bake Off’s Noel Field­ing (right) – is work­ing on a brand new project. Alex Horne’s lat­est show, The Per­cent­age Game, will see pan­el­lists re­veal fas­ci­nat­ing and fun facts. ‘Alex is very well con­nected and great at de­vis­ing game shows,’ says a source. ‘This could well be another hit.’

The hi­lar­i­ous mem­oir of a ju­nior doc­tor is to be drama­tised for tele­vi­sion. Re­cently pub­lished This Is Go­ing To Hurt, by co­me­dian Adam Kay, is about his six years work­ing for the NHS. An in­sider re­veals, ‘Adam has writ­ten com­edy for Mitchell and Webb so he’ll be writ­ing this se­ries him­self. Ex­pect to see it on one of the ma­jor sta­tions.’
