"I can’t wait to bring these heart-warming stories to life alongside such a wonderful team. It’s just the perfect dose of escapism we all need right now."
Tok Stephen has also joined the cast as Cedric ‘Charley’ Charlton, and he's similarly excited about the ITV series.
The actor is looking forward to working with the likes of Sabrina, Joanna Scanlan and Bradley Walsh.
He said: "I am thrilled to be cast as Charley in such a beloved and wonderful show.
"I can't wait to work alongside Joanna, Bradley and Sabrina. I'm incredibly excited. I hope we can impress fans of the original novels with our version."

"The warmth and affection that H. E Bates has generated through his books is so uplifting and I cannot wait to be part of the Larkin family. It’ll be a hoot!"
The new series will mark the first time in 30 years that the books and its sequels have been adapted for UK TV.
'The Darling Buds of May' previously aired on ITV in the early 90s and starred the likes of Sir David Jason and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
The show proved to be a huge hit and helped to propel the actress towards stardom.
