The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous (ITV Drama, Stephen Billington)



Drama serial The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous, based on the novel by Jilly Cooper, focused on Lysander Hawkley (Stephen Billington) who liked to see himself as a kind of marriage guidance service, having affairs with married women in order to bring them closer to their husbands (at least that was how Lysander judged his actions anyway).

Over the course of the three episodes Lysander dallied with Flora Seymour (Rhona Mitra) and Marigold Lockton (Gilly Cowan).
