Despite being a show with a lot of sex in it, Spreadsheet isn’t remotely sexy.

Katherine told Radio Times: “I think that’s what I like about it. It tells these stories but without being titillating or gratuitous. I didn’t feel for a second that there was going to be anything tawdry.

“And also, there’s a lot of focus on her home life and work relationships. Some of my favourite bits are with the guys in the office.”
