Who else is in Our House on ITV?

Fiona is played by Downtown Abbey star Tuppence Middleton, who also starred in Shadowplay and War and Peace.

Opposite Tuppence, playing Fiona’s disappeared husband Bram, is Martin.

The Line of Duty star has been a busy boy recently – fans will see him in upcoming submarine thriller Vigil on BBC One and the second series of Traces on Alibi.

Elsewhere, Rupert Penry-Jones will play enigmatic Toby, who has a few secrets up his sleeve, too.

Also in the cast is Weruche Opia, who viewers last saw in the award-winning I May Destroy You on BBC Two.

What did Martin say about the role?

Martin said about his new role: “I’m absolutely delighted to be part of the cast of ITV’s Our House in the role of Bram.

“The scripts are genuinely thrilling, packed with twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end. I’m excited to bring them to the screen.”

Elsewhere, Tuppence said:  “What struck me about Our House is its immense relatability; it’s a story where you catch a glimpse of yourself in the characters, and you get the chilling realisation that what happens to Fi could happen to anyone.

“What a fantastic opportunity to work alongside ITV and the team at Red Planet Pictures to adapt this artfully plotted novel.”

When will Our House be on?

When it announced the series, ITV kept schtum about any other details.

Currently, we don’t know when production will start.
