Psychological thriller The Apple Tree Yard premieres soon on BBC One

Published

on

What could have brought Dr. Yvonne Carmichael (played by Emily Watson), a law-abiding wife and mother, an eminent scientist, into a dock at the Old Bailey about to be exposed in a highly damaging and compromising lie?

Produced by the award-winning Kudos, Apple Tree Yard is a provocative, audacious thriller that puts women’s lives at the heart of a gripping, insightful story about the values we live by and the choices that we make. A ‘what if’ situation that could happen to any one of us.

Dr. Yvonne Carmichael has a high flying career, a beautiful suburban home and the perfect family. Smart, successful and highly renowned within her field of genetics, Yvonne has a conventional and apparently contented life, married to husband Gary, complete with two grown up children.

After confidently presenting to a Commons Select Committee on her specialist subject, she is approached by a charismatic and mysterious stranger, who seems refreshingly interested in what she has to say – refreshingly interested in her. Suddenly, she finds herself alone and intimate with him in the deserted crypt beneath the House of Commons. It’s a completely out of character moment of madness. Despite Yvonne’s expectations that she will never see Mark Costley again, their encounter builds to a passionate and all-consuming affair.

However, despite Yvonne’s careful plans to keep her career and home life separate, fantasy and reality soon start to overlap; finally everything she values is put at risk when a life-changing act of violence ultimately leads to a Crown Court trial…

Joined by Ben Chaplin (Cinderella, Mad Dogs) and Mark Bonnar (Catastrophe, Line Of Duty), the line-up also includes Adeel Akhtar (Capital, Murdered by My Father), Lydia Leonard (Life In Squares, River), Frances Tomelty (Unforgotten), Susan Lynch (Happy Valley) and Rhashan Stone (Strike Back).

Ferne McCann First Time Mum

Former Towie star Ferne McCann’s journey towards motherhood is documented in Ferne McCann: First Time Mum premiering on ITVBe on Tuesday 12 December at 9.00pm.

With intimate access to her close circle of family and friends, Ferne shows courage and strength in the face of adversity, as she confronts pregnancy in the backdrop of a media storm around her ex-partner.

Ferne says: “You find out you’re pregnant, you’re like, I was so excited and it was just all going to be amazing and then your whole life and world is turned upside down it was like, just absolute hell, and is hell.”

But the programme shows her positive approach and excitement about having a baby and she explains how she had to find the strength to carry on. She says: “I don’t think you realise how much strength you’ve actually got until you are faced with a terrible situation.”

With 12 weeks to go until she gives birth, Ferne she goes about her daily life – preparing for the baby and working hard.

As well as being pregnant she has moved out of her mum’s house and is living alone for the first time. But she still spends plenty of time with her mum who joins her for hypnobirthing lessons and will be her birthing partner when she goes into labour.

Ferne prepares for the new arrival by buying furniture for the baby – and struggling to put it together – and going for a psychic reading to find out more information about the little one.

Ferne also admits she is reluctant to join normal pregnancy groups due to her personal situation and the fear of people judging her, but she does try out pregnancy yoga after meeting another mum on a trip out. She also takes part in a magazine photoshoot and goes to her first red carpet event since discovering she was expecting.

Ferne allows intimate access to her close circle of family and friends such as James ‘Arg’ Argent, Vicky Pattison and Stephanie Pratt as she discusses her future with them and her excitement at having a baby.

The programme follows Ferne right up to giving birth to her baby girl and she is clearly besotted with her. Ferne says: “I cannot imagine life without her. It’s such a lovely surreal feeling that she is mine. I cannot believe I had a girl, I’m so shocked. I’m so in love.”

Ferne McCann First Time Mum Premieres Tuesday 12 December 2017 from 9.00pm-10.30pm on ITVBe.

This family love cooking but they throw most of their leftovers in the bin. Matt takes on the challenge to get them loving their leftovers, using them to create delicious new meals to save them money.

The Thai vegetable curry can be reinvented the following night with meat – and the leftover rice is used for a clever pudding! The final feast of Moroccan tagine is a taste sensation that will taste even better the next day. The Dhillons do a lot of top up shops at local convenience stores so Susanna is finding out how we can all shop smarter when we use the smaller shops – and as it’s the run up to Christmas we are testing the nation’s favourite tipple – red wine.
