What is new BBC crime drama Chloe all about?

Chloe tells the story of Becky – still living with her mum and working as a temp, she compares herself to the picture-perfect lives on Instagram.

One in particular – Chloe’s – grabs her attention and soon Becky obsessively watches her seemingly flawless life through social media.

Who stars in Chloe?

The six-part drama boasts some of the hottest young names in British acting.

The first-look images show Becky – as her alter ego Sasha – peering from behind a tree and looking a bit shifty, it has to be said.

Playing Becky/Sasha is Erin Doherty, who previously appeared in The Crown as a young Princess Anne.

Appearing as Chloe is Poppy Gilbert, who viewers may recognise from Netflix crime drama, Stay Close.

Elsewhere in the cast is Billy Howle (who last appeared in The Serpent) and Pippa Bennett-Warner (from Gangs Of London), who plays Chloe’s BFF, Livia.
