Having Sunday-night withdrawals for Mr Selfridge? Hopefully it won’t be too long to wait as the production and filming of the new 10 episode series is currently underway!

The first episodes will be directed by Anthony Byrne (Silent Witness, Single Handed). Kate Lewis, executive producer, said: “ITV Studios is thrilled to be making a second series of Mr Selfridge. ┬áThe story of Harry Selfridge, his family and colleagues has drawn in a strong drama audience and we are delighted by the response. The second series will allow us to build on this success and it is a fantastic opportunity to focus on 1914 during the centenary of the Great War.”
