BARNSLEY actress Gracie Kelly will appear in a new series of an ITV drama on Wednesday night.

Gracie, sister of Katherine Kelly, has landed a role in police drama Scott and Bailey.

The popular ITV show sees Suranne Jones and Lesley Sharp return as the crime-fighting team at 9pm.

The first episode involves the kidnap and murder of a vulnerable young adult, Robin McKendrick.

With a brother involved in a local gang rivalry, there's a chance Robin has been caught up in some sort of reprisal.

When a photo of Robin, bound and gagged in the boot of a car shows up on Facebook, the team know he's probably already dead.

But the body they recover from a flooded quarry is a woman.
