Adding more smoke to the fire, Jack reveals he only had sex once with Meghan before she fell pregnant.

"With stories like this and with characters like you really need to trust each other. You need to be able to find and navigate that space together.

Who is the father in The Secrets She Keeps book?

The Secrets She Keeps is based on Michael Robotham's book of the same name.

In his novel, we never learn who the real farmer is.

Simon takes a DNA sample in the penultimate chapter and sends it off for testing.

However, the result is left to the reader's imagination.

Of course, the BBC series could have a very different ending.

Is The Secrets She Keeps BBC series the same as the book?

Robotham's book was adapted for the small screen by producers Helen Bowden and Paul Watters.

During an interview with Drama Quarterly, Helen hinted that the series doesn't stray too far from Robotham's original words.

She said: "Honestly, it didn’t take a huge amount of work to conceive Secrets as a drama series. The book is superbly plotted.

"Once you start reading, you really can’t put it down; and it’s complex, so the six episodes just seemed to fall out of the pages.

"The characters, particularly Agatha, are also deeply compelling. I’ve done lots of adaptations and this one lent itself to the process very easily."
