1 Barking Murders BBC1 Here is the first photo of Sheridan Smith on set for this true-life drama, based on the crimes of serial killer Stephen Port, as filming gets underway in Manchester. Written by Jeff Pope and Neil McKay, the awardwinning team behind The Moorside and Appropriate Adult, the three-part series tells the story from the point of view of the victims’ families and focuses on their fight to uncover the truth about what had happened to their lost sons and brothers amid a police investigation that is now widely criticised.

‘it’s not an accident, it’s a crime!’

SOAP Coronation Street MONDAY, WEDNESDAY / ITV / TIMES VARY There’s carnage on the cobbles this week when the roof of Carla Connor’s precious Underworld factory collapses, causing one resident to meet their maker. The name of the unlucky victim is under wraps, as is the identity of the perpetrator. For this is no accident. ‘At first, it will appear to be an accident, but then it will be revealed as a criminal enterprise,’ teases show boss Iain MacLeod. ‘It’s a whodunit without a murder – instead, it’s gross negligence manslaughter. That may not sound as sexy, but it’ll be every bit as intriguing!’ So who’s the culprit? Here, we present the suspicious six – one of whom is to blame… THE SUSPECTS… SEB The troubled teen has been given the sack more times than a postman courtesy of…

‘these celebs are brave’

Why did you want to get involved in the show? Musical theatre is something that I’ve been involved in for some 55 years, and this show gives me the opportunity to pass on some tips and share the things I’ve learnt in my career. These celebrities are all accomplished performers in their own fields, who all have a desire to sing in a musical. It’s brave of them to step outside their comfort zone. What do you think of the talent of the celebrities involved? Many of these celebrities are not necessarily people you’d think would be singers or even want to sing. Of course, we all know Daniel Brocklebank as the vicar in Corrie – but many won’t know anything about his ability as a singer. You probably wouldn’t know that Alan…
