Are you looking forward to catching Belfast on the big screen?

Filming for Belfast took place across London and Belfast between September and October last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, and it's been reported that more than half of the scenes in the film take place outdoors as a result.

Meanwhile, Caitriona, who will soon return to screens for season six of time-travel drama Outlander, recently surprised fans by revealing that she had welcomed her first child with her husband, Tony Gill.

We are so grateful for this little soul… that he chose us as his parents. I'm in awe of him already and can't help stare and wonder at all the possibilities of who he will become, where he will go and what he'll do on the big adventure of his life."
