Jorgie Porter is hoping that she can join the next series of 'Doctor Foster' as a mistress

Jorgie Porter wants to join 'Doctor Foster'.

The 29-year-old actress has spent the past year and a bit across the pond in Los Angeles taking acting classes and learning about theatre but she has admitted she'd love nothing more than to make her television comeback on her home soil by playing a mistress in the gripping drama series, which stars Suranne Jones, next year.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, she said: "'Doctor Foster' is just brilliant. Imagine me as the new mistress, I'd be up for that.

"The twists were great in the first series. I don't think you can guess with that show. You just have to relax. Dramas like that are fun."

The first instalment of the show saw Doctor Foster - also known as Gemma (Suranne) - left heartbroken when she found out her husband Simon Foster (Bertie Carvel), had been having an affair with a younger woman called Kate Parks (Jodie Comer) and then decided to leave her to start a family with his pregnant girlfriend.

The second series of 'Doctor Foster' hit television screens earlier this month - almost two years after the first - and saw Simon return to their hometown Parminster with his wife and daughter in tow and get revenge on Gemma for taking their son Tom (Tom Taylor) away, turning their friends against him and getting him a criminal record.

Suranne has been heavily praised for her acting in the second series, but she recently admitted that it took her a while to agree to a follow-up and it wasn't until writer Mike Bartlett explained he'd base it on the pain of divorce that she signed up.

The 39-year-old actress explained at the time: "I went for dinner with Mike, and he said, 'What about the story of the divorce, when two people hate each other and they've got a kid to look after?' I was hooked."
