Olivia Colman expects the third series of 'Broadchurch' to begin shooting in May

Olivia Colman will shoot series three of 'Broadchurch' in May.

The 42-year-old actress has admitted she's hoping to reprise her role as detective sergeant Ellie Miller in the ITV drama in three months' time providing the storylines are ready and rest of the cast are available to crack on with filming.

Speaking on 'This Morning' on Thursday (18.02.16), she said: "I think we start [filming 'Broadchurch'] in May. But that can change, depending on availability and scripts and things."

The 'Peep Show' star can't wait to slip into her grey suit again this spring and, although she's nervous, she knows writer Chris Chibnall will impress yet again with his explosive scripts.

Asked if she's nervous about the show living up to its expectation, she explained: "That's quite scary, but luckily that's Chris's job, the writer. I love it, it's like a family."

The second series wrapped up last February and, shortly after it left screens, Chris teased that he already had ideas in mind for what the loveable characters will tackle next.

He said at the time: "This third chapter has been a glint in my eye for a long time and I'm thrilled to be writing these characters once again."

And fans are no doubt eager to find out what happened to Joe Miller (Matthew Gravelle) after the show finished on a cliffhanger when he was found not guilty for the brutal murder of Danny Latimer (Oskar McNamara) and whether he took his wife Ellie's advice to flee their close-knit small town in Dorset for good.
