‘ Sorry’ for Mis­er­able lack of sex

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

SCREEN­WRITER An­drew Davies has apol­o­gised to fans – be­cause he’s NOT crammed his new adap­ta­tion of Les Mis­er­ables with lash­ings of SEX!

An­drew ( above), 82, is the man who added in­cest to War and Peace, put daddy- is­sue sex into West­min­ster drama House of Cards, and reinvented Mr Darcy from Pride and Prej­u­dice as a hunky Colin Firth.

But he’s not tagged nookie onto Vic­tor Hugo’s story for the BBC adap­ta­tion, which stars Do­minic West, Olivia Col­man, Lily Collins and David Oyelowo.

He ex­plained: “You know, I do think sex is a huge mo­ti­va­tion in a lot of these great 19th- cen­tury books but not so much in Les Mis­er­ables. I don’t think I’ve put a great deal in that wasn’t there. I’m sorry to dis­ap­point.”

His six- parter starts tonight at 9pm.
