Suranne Jones is open to the idea of doing another series of 'Doctor Foster' but has admitted the current instalment has a solid ending

Suranne Jones has revealed the current series of 'Doctor Foster' has a "solid ending" - but she'd be open to another instalment if the "story was right."

The 39-year-old actress - who plays deceived doctor Gemma Foster in the drama - has confirmed the penultimate episode, which will air tomorrow (26.09.17), won't leave fans on the edge of their seats but she has teased that there may be a follow up.

She said: "If Mike [Bartlett, the show's creator] comes up with another story then we'll talk about it. But for now, like the first one, it's got a really good, solid ending."

The brunette beauty hopes the second series, which saw her alter-ego have revenge sex with her cheating ex-husband Simon (Bertie Carvel), will make people "think twice" about cheating on their partners and consider how the infidelity affect their children.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: "Hopefully it will make people think twice about divorce or having an affair in the first place. I certainly hope it makes people think about how they conduct themselves, if they do split with somebody.

"Ultimately, I just hope viewers enjoyed the ride of watching two people who really f***ing hate each other having to breathe the same air."

And Suranne thinks becoming a mother to her son, whom she has with her husband Laurence Akers, in March last year helped her view her role differently from series one.

She explained: "Being in a marriage and being a mother ­obviously helps with the devastation of someone betraying that. Also with the enormity of when you have a child, if you do separate, that something will always bind you and that actually you made that someone when you were totally in love. Then when you really hate each other, like in our story, you still have that person to take into adulthood. And you have to do it really carefully otherwise as much as you're going to damage each other and you're going to damage the child. So yeah, it gave me a gravitas and an enormity of the situation."
