Broadchurch star can relax again

Matthew Gravelle's character was revealed as the Broadchurch killer

TV star Matthew Gravelle is looking forward to being able to relax around people again - now he's finally been outed as the Broadchurch killer.

Fans of the hit ITV drama discovered Matthew's alter-ego Joe Miller killed Danny Latimer in the hotly anticipated series finale this week.

Father-of-two Matthew told The Sun: "The worst of the questioning had been in the school yard. When I was dropping the kids off, the parents of their friends were coming up from the start.

"Initially, they were joking that they didn't think the killer was me. But by the end they were all slightly suspiciously, asking: 'Is it actually you?'

"I'm looking forward to being able to relax around people now. It will be nice not being so cloak-and-dagger and having to tell lies about what happens."

Matthew, who played the husband of DS Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) in the drama, said he wasn't told about his character's part in the murder until the show's writer let him in on the secret before filming the finale.

He believed recluse Susan Wright (Pauline Quirke) or Reverend Paul Coates (Arthur Darvill) could be the culprits.

He told the newspaper: "During filming I didn't think it was me until Chris (Chibnall) phoned to tell me. Watching it live with the nation, it seems more obvious that I should have suspected it was me all along."
