The 44-year-old actress has been added to the cast of the eight-episode drama, which is to be written and produced by "The Missing" and "Fleabag" brothers Harry and Jack Williams.

In a joint statement announcing Kate's casting, the Williams brothers said: "Kate Beckinsale is a brilliantly talented actress and we're thrilled she's joining us on this journey - we couldn't imagine anyone more perfect for the role.

""The Widow" is our most ambitious and cinematic piece to date and we can't wait to bring the dark heart of the Congolese jungle to the screen."

Kate is poised to play the part of Georgia Wells, who has distanced herself from her previous life and is a completely different woman to who she once was.
