'Broadchurch' actress Olivia Colman has revealed that she found out the killer of Danny Latimer before the rest of the cast, much to the annoyance of her co-star David Tennant

David Tennant was "mad" at Olivia Colman when she found out the 'Broadchurch' killer before him.

The Scottish actor - who plays Detective Inspector Alec Hardy on the hit ITV show - was very unhappy to discover that producers divulged the identity of schoolboy Danny Latimer's murderer to Olivia before anyone else.

Talking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Olivia joked: "He went mad when he found out I knew and wouldn't tell him."

The actress - who plays Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller - was forbidden from telling anyone the details of the plot, which ended in the revelation that her on-screen husband Joe (Matthew Gravelle) had murdered the youngster.

The rest of the cast were kept in the dark over the killer secret until they began filming the final episode of the drama.

A second series of 'Broadchurch' is already being filmed in Dorset and Somerset, meaning that a new murder mystery is possibly on the cards.

However, show writer Chris Chibnall confirmed that the actors don't know what the outcome of the new series will be.

He explained: "We have shot so much stuff that people don't really know what we have shot."
