Broad­church fans hound Jonathon for plot se­crets

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BROAD­CHURCH ac­tor Jonathan Bailey has revealed he finds it dif­fi­cult to keep se­crets about the show’s plot – and has even run away when con­fronted by view­ers ask­ing about the se­ries.

Cast and pro­duc­tion mem­bers have been told to keep a lid on the thriller’s twists and the ac­tors say they too are in the dark about what hap­pens at the end of the sec­ond se­ries, which launched on ITV on Mon­day night.

Bailey ( above), 26, who re­turned to the south coast drama as jour­nal­ist Olly Stevens, said he will be lay­ing low to avoid dif­fi­cult ques­tions over the com­ing weeks.

Speak­ing at the premiere of Tes­ta­ment Of Youth – in which he also stars – he said: “I’m go­ing to go on a long hol­i­day. I’m go­ing to have a sab­bat­i­cal for a year. I’m ter­ri­ble at keep­ing se­crets. I get all ex­cited.

“I re­mem­ber af­ter the first se­ries I had quite a jolly night out and ev­ery­one was wait­ing for a night bus, and I was not ready for this but I got ac­costed.

“I kind of just couldn’t deal with it and so I just shouted ac­tor’s names that were in Broad­church and ran off – so for that rea­son, I’m count­ing my­self out.”
