In the chilling new image released this week, we get a glimpse of the abuse Joanne's character Angela suffers at the hands of her husband. Dressed in a robe and looking deep in thought, a bandage can be seen covering what looks like a nasty wound on her forearm.

The six-part series, set to air on ITV1 in 2021, sees Joanne play a suburban housewife whose perfect life is hiding some huge secrets. Game of Thrones actor Michiel Huisman will play Angela's husband, Olivier, while Samuel Adewunmi appears as private investigator Ed.
