Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall's admitted to being nervous before ringing one of the new actors to offer her a part in series 2 of the drama.

He says the call to Charlotte Rampling was 'daunting', but then found her delightful, engaged and interested, so his fears were unfounded.

He's told Wessex FM the actress, who lives in Paris, has also 'fallen in love' with West Bay.

Last week Broadchurch had 7.6 million viewers for the series 2 opener, 800,000 more than for the first episode of series one.

Episode 2 of series 2 is back on ITV 1 at 9pm, with the latest ebook also set for release at midnight.
