Scott And Bailey is to return for a fourth series, ITV has confirmed.

Surrane Jones and Lesley Sharp star as the female detective duo in the show which is based on an idea by Suranne and fellow actress Sally Lindsay, who plays Bailey's sister Alison in the drama.

The crime drama is a female take on the traditional male cop buddy genre, and revolves around the professional and private lives of Detective Constable Rachel Bailey (Suranne) and DC Janet Scott (Lesley).

The finale of series three earlier this year was watched by an average 7.1 million viewers, an improvement on the previous season.

The new series, filmed on location in Manchester, will go into production in spring 2014.

Executive producer Nicola Shindler said: "We're thrilled to be producing a new series of Scott And Bailey. It's rewarding to think the public have become so familiar with the characters and taken them to heart. With this new series, we have the chance to explore great story ideas and continue developing those characters."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Take a friend's advice with a pinch of salt. Although you love this dreamer dearly, they don't have a realistic grasp of the situation. Trust your instincts instead. You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
