"It was cancelled by Hulu and it was one of those cancellations where they said we've done brilliant, the viewing figures for the third season were really great, but they we wanted to leave it on a high," she explained. "Which I always understand, no one wants to leave a show on a low, but it was also equally frustrating when you've only just come in!"

The White Lines star also opened up about the prospect of a fourth series: "As far as I know, it's done and dusted, but I do kind of feel like there should be a petition somewhere for the BBC to make it. I'm sure if the BBC decide that it had a slot, they could possibly reignite it."

She added: "I'd love for it to go for another season. It's really popular and it's a critical success as well. It's so diverse, it's full of women, it's from a female's point of view, and all the creative team behind it is really diverse, too."

Angela, 44, was chatting to HELLO! to celebrate her recent campaign with Aunt Bessies as part of their "Time to Roast" campaign to unite families together. The actress, who's a mother of two, revealed how special meal times were in her house, particularly during lockdown earlier this year.

"Sunday roasts are really special in our house, they always have been since I was a kid that was THE meal of the week. I think especially right now, with everything that's going on and during lockdown because you're all in a house together, you've got to make some moments special.

"We made sure that on our Sundays everyone had to put devices down, everyone had to come down and that was our time to be together."
