What is Witness Number 3 on Channel 5 about?

The show centres around Jodie Parker, a single mum and owner of a hairdressers in London.

One day, she happens to witness what seems like an innocent situation…

But she soon finds herself as the most significant witness in a murder enquiry.

Unfortunately, the murderer is a gang boss, and Jodie finds herself facing a campaign of intimidation.

What begins with a series of strange text messages and memes to her phones builds to greater danger.

Her ordeal intensifies as a local gangs threatens Jodie and her young son Kyle (Cole Martin), as well as trashing her flat.

Sue Johnston, who plays Jodie’s mum, tells us that “the script is different”.

She says: “I’ve not seen this story anywhere before.

“It is a great psychological thriller and also it makes your heart pump.”

Nina Toussaint-White, who leads the show adds: “I think viewers will be completely drawn into Jodie’s relationship with her mum.”

She says: “This is a story of someone being proud and believing in where she’s from and fighting to the bitter end to up-lift it and protect it.”

But at what cost?
