The 38-year-old actress plays Laura Neilson in the psychological thriller, which concluded its first series in October 2017 and was ITV's highest rated new drama with 9.1 million viewers tuning into the final episode.

She told The Times" 2 Arts: "I was in and out in an hour. It's not perfect - what system is? - but the people who work for the NHS are so dedicated. We're extremely lucky to have it."

Froggatt and co-star Andrew Earlham (Ioan Gruffudd) will both reprise their roles in the upcoming second series, which is set to explore who killed Andrew in the form of flashback sequences.
