THE hit ITV programme starring Barnsley actress Katherine Kelly has been commissioned for a second series.

The screen favourite - who starred as Lady Mae Loxley in the first series of Mr Selfridge - is also expected to reprise her role.

Since launching last month, it's attracted a peak episode audience of 9.4million viewers.

Kate Bain, at ITV, said: "Production have had some very positive conversations with Katherine about the new series and hope to confirm her as one of the key characters very soon indeed."
