Yet Jodie Comer transformed from evil to angel on Monday as she joined fellow Liverpudlian Stephen Graham on set of Channel 4 drama Help.

Help is set in Liverpool and centres on the relationship between the young care home worker and her patient as they deal with the effects of the pandemic.

It will tell the story of Sarah’s relationship with Tony – a 47-year-old man with the degenerative condition – as the care home struggles to cope with the spread of the virus. 

When Channel 4 first announced the drama, Stephen said: ‘I’ve wanted to work with Jodie for ages, and together we’re hugely passionate about shining a light on one of the biggest tragedies of our time and the people at the heart of it.’
