Ashley Jensen Confirmed For Love, Lies and Records

Ashley Jensen (Agatha Raisin) will star in Love, Lies and Records, a new six part BBC One drama by Kay Mellor (In The Club) which follows Registrar Kate Dickinson as she juggles her personal life with the daily dramas of births, marriages and deaths.

After being promoted to Superintendent, Kate (Ashley Jensen) finds herself torn by the responsibilities of being a working mother. Her daughter’s hiding messages on her mobile, her son hates her because she’s bought him the wrong trainers and now her stepson has turned up to stay.

As Kate tries to hold her work, life and relationship together, things become impossible when a disgruntled colleague threatens to expose a secret from her past that threatens everything she has worked for.

Ashley Jensen said: “Kay’s writing is always honest and from the heart. I think that Kay has always managed to tap into issues that are relevant to ordinary peoples everyday lives and with this new show she deals with the major dramatic milestones that affect pretty much all of us.”

Love, Lies and Records, which begins filming in and around Leeds next month, also stars Adrian Bower (Teachers), Kenny Doughty (Vera), Rebecca Front (Doctor Thorne) and Mark Stanley (Dickensian).
