Olivia Colman has confirmed she'll return to 'Broadchurch'.

The 39-year-old actress will reprise her role as DS Ellie Miller in the popular murder mystery drama, when it returns to screens next year for series two, but she won't make an appearance in an upcoming US remake featuring David Tennant.

At the screening of new BBC One two-part drama 'The 7.39', she said: "I don't want to get myself in trouble but I think it's set in stone."

The brunette beauty - who won two TV BAFTAs for her roles in comedy 'Twenty Twelve' and drama 'The Accused' earlier this year - enjoyed taking the summer off and spending time with her family after a jam-packed year of working.

She said: "I was nervous I wouldn't know what to do with myself but it turns out I am more than brilliant at doing nothing."

However, Olivia previously said she has been forced to put off going to the shops to buy milk since starring in 'Broadchurch' in case people recognise her.

She said: "It's a bit peculiar and I'm sure I'll get better at it. But if I need a pint of milk, I'll wait until I really need to go. Where I live, everybody knows me so that's fine, but away from home it's slightly daunting - and I'm a bit of a chicken."
