A TV show filmed in Somerset is set to air on Channel 4 tonight (Wednesday, January 3).

Truelove was filmed in the Burnham-on-Sea, Berrow, and Clevedon areas in 2023 and in 2022 - it will premiere on Channel 4 on Wednesday, January 3, from 9pm.

The show is described by Channel 4 as 'a unique spin on a cat and mouse thriller, centring on a gang of older friends who make a pact that, if and when the time comes, rather than let each other suffer a dreadful decline they will engineer a more dignified death as a sign of ‘Truelove’'.

Sue Johnston, known for her roles in Waking the Dead and The Royle Family, leads the cast made up mainly of those aged 70 and older.

A spokesperson for Channel 4 said: "Truelove offers a refreshingly different take on older age, with its thrilling twists, wry sense of humour, and a passionate love story at its heart, celebrating second chances and the idea that it’s never too late.

"Meanwhile underpinning all of this is the knottiest of moral questions – is it ever right to help end of life?"

Sue plays the role of Marion, a fringe member of the main group, married to David, and brother of Tom - she’s been happily married to David for fifty years and enjoys a quiet life by the coast.
