Back again: The cast of Give My Head Peace

They have never been Northern Ireland's closest couple, but Ma and Da from Give My Head Peace were keeping even more of a distance than usual as the cameras rolled on a very different new series of the BBC's longest-running local comedy.

This was more like Give My Head space as the cast and crew got to grips with the dramatic novel way of filming for television amid ultra-tight coronavirus restrictions which meant that all the old norms of recording went out the window.

Wearing my other hat as an actor, I got an insight into the making of the new four-part series as I joined the cast for one episode - not in the usual commodious BBC studios in the centre of Belfast, but in the middle of nowhere in a business park outside Carrickfergus.
