ITV have confirmed Amanda Burton has joined the cast of "Marcella".

The "Silent Witness" actress will appear alongside fellow newcomer Aaron McCusker - who played Freddie Mercury's partner Jim Hutton in "Bohemian Rhapsody" - in ITV's crime drama third series, and filming has got underway.

Amanda will play Maguire crime family matriarch Katherine, with former "Shameless" actor Aaron playing her son Finn, and Hugo Speer will reprise his role as Frank Young after a brief appearance at the end of the previous season.

As well as new faces - including the likes of Kelly Gough, Eugene O'Hare, Paul Kennedy, Martin McCann and Michael Colgan - Ray Ranthaki will be back for the new eight-part run as Rav Sangha.

Leading star Anna Friel will be back in the title role as filming gets underway on location in Belfast, and she is excited for the show to "delve" into the character's "unsettled world".
