This comes as a devastating blow to David who has seen his brother as his life support since being released from prison.

Phil has given his sibling a place to live, an endless supply of money and sacrificed relationships to help get him back on his feet.

But it turns out this was all due to a guilty conscience.

The series concludes with David finally being reunited with his poor son and daughter – and a huge apology from his sister-in-law.

Opening up about the ITV drama, Daniel teased what viewers can expect when they tun in.

He told the Radio Times: “It doesn’t feel like a crime drama. It feels like a family drama, it feels like a relationship drama.

“It’s an emotional journey that happens to have this underlying need for us all to find out – ‘well if it wasn’t him then who was it?’

“But it’s about a man and his family and someone trying to get their kids back and that really spoke to me. I found it very moving.”

Has Innocent been on TV before?

If the ITV drama looks familiar, that’s because it’s a repeat.

The four-part series originally aired over four consecutive nights back in 2018, from May 14 to 17.

According to official figures, 7.05 million people tuned in for the premiere episode.

However, this dropped to 5.85 million when episode two aired.

Innocent concludes on ITV at 9.15pm tonight (May 7.)
