The ITV drama is doing a Christmas special

Despite the broadcaster not revealing whether series two is happening, viewers will be able to get their fix of The Larkins after the first season comes to its conclusion as Bradley previously revealed a Christmas episode is on the way!

Appearing on The One show last month, the actor and presenter on The Chase told the hosts that they were filming scenes for a festive episode: "We're making the Christmas Larkins in Kent. We've got all the snow - honestly, it's amazing, absolutely tremendous, Brilliant, brilliant."

The new series, penned by The Durrell's screenwriter Simon Nye, is a remake of the 1990s original, which is an adaptation of H.E. Bates’ 1950s novel The Darling Buds of May. It follows the working-class Larkin family, a good-hearted and optimistic group of people who are always happy to share what they have with others.
