sue Johnston and rob­son green head an all-star cast as film­ing be­gins on new BBC1 drama se­ries Age Be­fore Beauty

TV Times - - My TV Times Week -

Fans of Amanda Holden and Sarah Parish’s hit early Noughties hair salon drama Cut­ting It should al­ready be book­ing an ap­point­ment for BBC1 drama Age Be­fore Beauty.

As you can see from our snaps, film­ing has just be­gun on the six­part saga, penned by Poldark writer Deb­bie Hors­field, who also cre­ated Cut­ting It. At its heart is a dys­func­tional fam­ily rife with sib­ling rivalries and un­con­ven­tional par­ent­ing through the gen­er­a­tions.

The story cen­tres on home­maker

Bel (Mr Sel­fridge star Polly Walker), who’s been mar­ried for 25 years and has spent most of it look­ing af­ter her twins. She’s begged by her brother-in­law and best mate Teddy (Grantch­ester star Rob­son Green, look­ing smart here in a blue-and-white checked shirt) to help save the fam­ily busi­ness – a run­down beauty salon in Manch­ester.

On the pay­roll are Bel’s mum, North­ern soul fa­natic and spray tan tech­ni­cian Ivy-rae (The Royle Fam­ily and Down­ton Abbey star Sue Johnston – we’re lov­ing the gold train­ers!) and her sis­ters, nail-tech­ni­cian and per­sonal stylist

Leanne (The Level’s Kelly Har­ri­son), cos­metic surgery ad­dict Heidi (The Five’s Vicky My­ers) and tat­tooist Tina (Three Girls star Lisa Ri­ley, look­ing fab as she chan­nels the rock-star look with braided hair!).

Mean­while, Bel’s hus­band Wes­ley is played by Cut­ting It star James Mur­ray.

We hope it hits our screens soon!
