Award-winning actor Timothy Spall, tipped to scoop up more accolades for his role in the smash-hit film Mr Turner, plays Maurice Grosse, a paranormal researcher who strikes up a connection with Janet, when he investigates the strange happenings at the Hodgson family home.

Eleanor shot to fame in 2012 when she became the youngest ever recipient of the Laurence Olivier Award® for her shared role of Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre in London.

I’ve got to work with so many fantastic actors like Timothy, Matthew, Juliet and Rosie and I’ve worked with an amazing production team. I can’t wait for it to be on Sky Living in the spring.”
