And off-screen the pair became incredibly close, with Sophie (who plays Ann Walker) revealed: ‘We did become like an old married couple by the end.’

The actress also confessed that they ‘did a lot of online shopping’ to pass the time during shooting.

Suranne added: ‘We spent a lot of time in bed like two nanna’s having brews in our pyjamas. It was during Covid times and were like, “what should we buy? We’re not going anywhere”.’

Elsewhere in the interview, Suranne explained of her character: ‘[Anne is] like no other character I’ve played. She finds me.

‘As soon as I put the costume on, and the shoes on, which are very flat men’s shoes, and then everything – you get trussed in, because I wear the corsets underneath as well, and then the tie goes on.

‘It’s like the credits when she’s getting dressed. It builds throughout the day. We have a really good chat in makeup, put the world to rights, staying there far too long and then we get dragged out…

‘And then something happens where I do become her. That doesn’t happen with every character that you play. She’s so full of life, she’s so energetic, she’s so glorious in every way and a pain in the backside!’
