Cutting It star heads for Paradise
Cutting It star Ben Daniels is joining the department store costume drama The Paradise for its new series.
The actor will play former soldier Tom Weston - the new husband of Katherine Glendenning, played by Elaine Cassidy.
The second series of the BBC One show, inspired by a novel by French writer Emile Zola, begins a year after the events of the first series and sees the return of cast members including Joanna Vanderham, who plays Denise Lovett.
Ben said: "I'm a huge Emile Zola fan and when Bill Gallagher said he was writing a new character for The Paradise and had me in mind for the role I knew I wanted to play Tom Weston before I'd even read a word of the script.
"Tom's a fascinating animal and will certainly be ruffling a few feathers (and silks!) along the way. I'm really looking forward to the next few months of filming."
